About me
I am a music, dance, and a communications junkie with a passion for good style. I have graduated with a BA degree in Performance Design and Practice at Central Saint Martins and MA degree from Royal College of Art. You can spot me jumping from one techno club, to a salsa bar, chatting people up, and buying everybody drinks. If not, I will probably be in a dark corner having a philosophical and political discussion on how we can change the world. I have had experience in Set and Costume design for theatre, TV, dance, as well as studio and marketing assisting jobs. I am a multilingual and charismatic human being. Please check out my website and Instagram account 'Moody.aliens'.
  • Design for Dance
    Design for DanceDesign for Dance was a collaboration piece with a choreographer Stephanie Gomm, and dancers from the Central School of Ballet. The piece was inspired by sci-fi films such as the "Fifth Element" and "The Giver" and the idea of a possible future that awaits us. I have designed and made the costumes, set and lighting. The performance took place at the Platform Theatre at Central Saint Martins University in 2015.
