About me

After a background studying in the arts, I found myself leaning over to the entertainment industry due to my particular enjoyment in events. I like to have my fingers in many pies and have a multifaceted, creative approach to most of my roles. I have skills in brand collaborations, celebrity / influencer placement, event production, public speaking, writing, editing and various forms of mgmt. Coming up to the 5th month of Lover Management, I have worked with brands such as; Polydor Records, Relentless Records, RCA Records, Island Records, Universal, Sony, Haglofs, Asahi Beer, Ugly Drinks, chakrubs, Feeld, hanx, Nike, Nando's, Scotria, Melissa, and Good Hood. We have hosted events at venues such as Ace Hotel, Love Island at mother, laylow, The Curtain and on a boat up and down the Thames. We have also worked helped our lovers get press with; thisistomorrow , hyperallergic, tzvetnik, iiii magazine, qx magazine, sister magazine, vice, timeout , dazed, hunger and Evening Standard. Some of my clients include; Mimosa House, Poundland Bandit, Screenshot, Pxssy Palace, lick, Chakrubs and Balamii. In my writing, I am mainly a digital culture journalist with particular interest to Foucault’s Panopticism, internet subcultures, conspiracies, problematic right-wing males, and new technologies – specifically Artificial Intelligence (AI) , Augmented reality (AR) and the politics surrounding this. Beyond this, I also like to interview interesting characters, as well as occasional food critiquing. I have written and created content for Screenshot, Polyester, Corridor8, Foodepedia and more.
