ABOUT
ABOUT ME

Currently residing on the edge of the South Wales in the shadow of a transporter bridge.

WLTM people who want to: play, challenge institutional power, ask questions + effect change.

 Falling in love with the geography of mountains and embarking on adventures with artists + writers.

WHAT I DO

I rummage in other fields of thought & hunt for the alternative to translate, repackage & enhance existing models.

I uncover ideas, build systems of discovery & approach concepts from alternative perspectives.

I specialise in producing, strategic development & fundraising in the creative industries in UK & Asia.

WHAT I'VE DONE

Founder of the Hip Hop Dance Almanac; a 5 year archive project preserving UK Hip Hop dance voices.

Remixing Criticism is an interactive critique of Hip Hop, dance, institutional power and the erasure of women.


I wrote & produced Preppers: The Game - a work for Amazon Alexa that looks at prepping & survivalism.
