The difference between reaching and engaging audiences lies in whether you can truly entertain them. That’s my belief, and it’s one that I’ve proved time and time again throughout my career. I’m an experienced social media strategist with a diverse skill set and an ability to grip the attention of large audiences through insightful content. I’ve spent nearly a decade managing social channels to market brands of all shapes and sizes, including youth organisations, entrepreneurs, touring musicians and even global corporate powerhouses. As a result of that journey I know what content sells, and how to deliver it. I approach life with an entrepreneurial mindset, because I know that this digital world rewards go-getters. Armed with an ability to harness the latest trends, I’ve co-founded an initiative championing BAME talent in the creative industries, consulted for a celebrity influencer, grown the online fanbases of a number of performing artists, and executed people-focused social strategies for one of the world’s largest FMCG corporations. Currently the Social Media Tech Champion for the South East of England for The Arts Council. As a real people-person I’m always looking to connect with like-minded individuals. If you think you could be one of them, let’s talk.

From the name of the series to finding the location for us to shoot it was a fun project to work and I'm already thinking about how we can go bigger and better for season 2. The 1st episode is with Sop
- Realz EP promotion - ContentFor the release of Realz latest EP "Get Set" I had a variety of different interviews created to help with the promotion of the project. We filmed a track by track with Realz as well as an interview where he spoke about his plans for 2019. I also had some of his fans come to a secret location where we filmed a private listening session and got their first reactions to the music. As the purpose of the content was to promote the new EP we wanted to create content that would work well on Instagra

The works are mostly esoteric inspired with the guidance of automatic practice; the works form in an organic manner and find meaning after creation. The hand is idle to the body yet connected to the unconscious. The works are still playful and have a light heartedness to them.
