About me
|| Designing conversation through the art of storytelling, experiential design and stylised sensorial soirees|| I am a trained journalist, content strategist/ creator, artist and photographer based in East London. I believe in co-creation and cross pollination. No man is an island. I have worked in an array of media such as magazines, newspapers, radio, advertising and digital; specialising in music, interiors and design - and curious about food, trends, productivity, working cultures, sustainability, climate change and identity. I convey a strong will and sensitivity to life and work in an unashamed and poetic way. With a background in Fine Art, Visual Communications and Journalism, I structure my content around connection and my stories are fuelled by plentiful stimuli. Approaching each project with an inclusive vision and timeline, I create storyboards that live across multiple channels creating narratives with prose and visuals
