About me
I am a highly motivated and inquisitive creative thinker, fascinated by the constant flux of visual and social culture. I have 8 years experience in creative industries, over 3 of which have been working as a freelance Cultural Analyst. I’ve been primarily based in London but have also worked remotely from the US and Europe, enabling me to provide exciting, emergent insights for a range of markets. As a artist, I have had my work featured in a number of magazines - including GUT, Terra Firma and Marfa Journal- and created immersive installations in London and California. I’m enthusiastic, sociable and focused on learning as much as I can!

  • Suburbia and the Wilderness
    Suburbia and the WildernessA think piece created for the Space Doctors blog. The piece examines contemporary representations of 'safe' suburbia posed against the symbolic unknown of the wilderness. Focusing on hit TV shows such as Big Little Lies, Stranger Things and Twin Peaks the Return, I discuss how replacing suburbia's white picket fence with the endless possibilities of the vast wilderness, creates a dichotomy between suburbia as a safe haven and a trap.
