About me

As part of a small team start-up, my responsibilities in my current position are wide-ranging. Over the last two years, I have organised three pop-up exhibitions, one-off performances, curated and executed events programmes including talks and workshops as well as maintaining the company's public profile online and producing the bulk of their editorial content - articles and interviews with influential London artists, thinkers and creatives - and commissioning/editing the work of guest writers.
