Welcome to my blog! This blog charts a few adventures, in and around my everyday life and work, from, urban farming to learning to play the piano to writing, curating and making films, exhibitions and events.

About me: I grew up in the east end of London before moving to Manchester to study neuroscience. After studying, including doing a PhD, I worked in the TV and film industry in London before getting involved in cultural and social change initiatives in Manchester. Two and a bit years after being awarded a Wellcome Trust Engagement Fellowship, I took up a lectureship at Salford University to set up and teach an MSc. More recently I was awarded a Jerwood Fellowship with Manchester International Festival with five Manchester creatives.

I am interested in what we might learn from past social movements, such as the US civil rights movement, to unearth hidden pioneers and evolve 21st century identities to address climate injustice and colonial legacies.

I am Creative Director of Squirrel Nation, which i co-founded with visual artist and designer, Caroline Ward.
