Hello,

I'm an artist and curator – my practice is focused on relations between technology, media, and community. I employ a range of processes from historical research to printmaking, curation to mural making, publishing to workshops.

I'm currently a research associate at FACT, Liverpool, where I have been investigating the history of the old Liverpool Observatory. My research translated into a group exhibition entitled The New Observatory which I co-curated with Hannah Redler of the Open Data Institute, during summer 2017 at FACT.

I live and work in Thamesmead, South East London, where I'm developing a new community radio station with TACO to be launched later in 2018, and I've also produced a number of projects with Peabody in the area, including a local culture guide, arts participation survey, and arts festivals in 2015 and 2016.

I'm co-chair of Working Group 1 of the COST Action on New Materialism, co-edit the project almanac, and co-direct Torque, an experimental digital literacy project. I'm into co-co-co-co-llaboration!

I have a BA (LJMU) and MA (Sussex) in Art History.
