About me

I am an experienced creative with an interest in youth culture, fashion, art, beauty and music that has a track record in developing editorial, video content, events and branded partnerships. In 2015 I edited both Prote.in and the Protein Journal print magazine, while working with clients including Microsoft, Absolut, Puma, Sonos, Jameson and Timberland. In 2016 I launched TREMORS, a new tv channel, creating a 3D video campaign for Walter van Beirendonck x FakbyFak, which reached 120k + impressions. In tandem I art directed a hologram installation for fashion label Hanger, as well as mix promos, art films, music videos and straight up interviews – winning press in Hunger, Sleek, Nero Journal and Fucking Young! In my current role at The Future Laboratory, I track fashion, advertising and media trends, with a specific focus on youth culture, regularly presenting keynotes and advis​ing​ clients on strategy. ​​ The Sunday Times, Vogue​, Elle, ShowStudio, Campaign​ and The Guardian​ have interviewed me as an ​expert in my field.
