Interdisciplinary artist, designer and researcher.

I work with both established and emergent creative techniques to tell the important stories of our time. As a senior digital designer I have led global projects from inception to delivery for clients including the BBC, Orange and American Express. More recently, my work as a digital artist and creative has received significant organic press coverage nationally and internationally.

Critical analysis and research are integral to my practice. I am a vocal advocate for the inclusion of a diverse range of voices in the creative process, and have recently drawn particular inspiration from Donna Haraway’s situated design methodologies. In my personal work, I explore human bias through questions of who is seen and heard, but more importantly, who is not.

I also teach at the Royal College of Art and University of the Arts London.
