About me
I have worked in social innovation since 2011. I specialise in service design, user research and multimedia storytelling. In late 2019, I directed 'We The People', a participatory documentary exploring Brixton and activism through an intergenerational lense. I am currently developing Comfort Food, an intimate experience combining audio storytelling and dining to bring people’s emotional food memories to life. I am passionate about food sustainability and founded the Brixton People's Kitchen.
