I am a recent graduate of a Cultural Studies MA Program, with a BA in English Literature. In my academic life, I have focussed on ways to turn to creative expression (music and photography) as a source of social theory--an interest largely informed by my person interests in music and art, their economies and my belief in their importance. I have experience writing, in communications, and as a researcher. I have deep love of travel and new experiences (which has recently prompted my move to London, from Vancouver). I am keen to find new experiences that both utilize the skills I have acquired over the years in writing, communications and critical thinking, and allow me to access new spaces, new projects and modes of learning.Locked Pro Plan feature
