About me

My professional experience over the last 10 years, both in London and abroad, has been primarily in project management and creative production positions. This has led me to work with a huge variety of Art industry partners & clients, including some of the top emerging and established designers and makers in the UK, Sub-Saharan Africa and India and working with a vast array of people and disciplines, from artisans weaving in rural communities, to master ceramicists and cutting- edge furniture designers.

      • Since 2009 I have worked as a design consultant collaborating with artisans in South Africa and Swaziland, building connections between developing world artistry to contemporary creative platforms.

Since launching the business I have been invited to speak at Downing Street as a representative for Craft Design Entrepreneurs, to Buckingham Palace as a guest at the Queen’s Commonwealth Reception in 2013 and appeared in the Maserati 100, a definitive list of Britain’s most successful business leaders actively supporting the next generation of entrepreneurs.
