I’m a writer, editor, creative producer, and researcher based in South-East London, currently working at the BBC. The themes I’m interested in combine heritage, history, work, folklore, storytelling, community celebration and community action.
My work branches a range of skills across ideas and brainstorming, production, research, design, and journalism.
I am most comfortable working with writing, but make films, record sound, and create more experimental projects working with artists, illustrators, and various other collaborators.
Over the years, I have chopped and changed industry, but started out as a music journalist writing for blogs and national newspapers. This work has included commissions for Vice, The Guardian, Independent, BBC, Red Bull, and Dazed.
Since then a large proportion of my work has been devoted to bringing together projects, from regional to national festivals to complex consultancy jobs and events.
More generally, I do these things:
As a producer, I’ve brought together work for Glastonbury Festival, Thames Festival Trust, Museum of London, Independent Venue Week, Brainchild, STEEZ, Cable London and a range of others.
I’ve worked in a really broad range of positions from strategy to journalism, production to marketing helping to deliver everything from festivals to arts residencies, magazines to museum re-designs. At all turns it’s been about offering creative and disrupting ideas that help companies move forward.
Clients include: BBC, The Guardian, Vice, Glastonbury Festival, Tate, Thomas Cook, Shelter, Lambeth Council, Nike, Converse, Stanhope, Museum of London, Royal Parks, Penguin Books, Pan Macmillan, The Walcott Foundation, Trust for London, The Creative Society, Human Appeal UK, Thames Festival Trust, Independent Venue Week, Trinity Laban, Channel 4, and Brainchild.
I’m a member of The Creative Society’s Step Up program and part of the Clore Emerging Leaders network.
