bio 

 

After 6 years working in the London film industry on ads and promos. I left to spend 7 years in NYC working in museums and galleries. I returned three years ago and I’m now applying the skills I’ve learned in both cities to production design and the art department. My skill set is developed from sculpture, curating and art department assisting, it includes an instinctive relationship to objects within a variety of environments. 

 

As an artist I have exhibited internationally in galleries and museums including The Saatchi Gallery in London, The Hermitage in St. Petersburg, and The National Gallery of Australia. I have been represented by commercial galleries in London and New York. While working for museums such as the Museum of Modern Art in New York and being a studio assistant for artists including Jennifer Bartlett and Urs Fischer I learned a broad set of practical and technical skills. I've won two awards for best avant-garde film in The New York Independent Film Festival and Crown Heights film festival for films that I directed and designed, C.A.G.E. and White Light.
