I am an artist, graphic designer and Doctor in Political and Social Thought. My artistic practice and publications explore art and design as transformative experience.


I have been awarded multiple art awards and research grants, including a PhD Scholarship from the University of Kent and a teaching prize for my creative and experimental seminars. 


As part of Tate Modern’s pioneering Tate Exchange programme, I was Lead Artist for the University of Kent in 'Fairground' (2017).  

I have created designs for Pret, University of Kent, Escape Kent, Prison Island, Prison Putt, Total Pool Services, Shake & Moo, and Poca & Pan. My artwork has also featured in InsideKent, The Caitlin Guide, The State of Art: Sculpture and 3D volumes and The Sunday Times magazine.

Currently, I lead and manage the visual development of projects at Escape Kent. I am artistically responsible for Graphic Design, Motion Graphics, Animation, Concept Art, 2D/3D Art,  digital brand assets, CAD/CAM Designs, Prop Making, Set Design, and Scenic Art.

Some of my work from Escape Kent can be seen on Dragons’ Den for their pitch, aired on 3rd February 2022 on BBC One. Along with the treasure chest and doubloons, I created the pirate ship’s sail concept art featuring the Dragons' Den judges (Sara Davies, Peter Jones, Deborah Meaden, Touker Suleyman and Steven Bartlett) as pirates. 

I also create freelance Graphics and Illustrations of Empowerment! for Poca & Pan. Feel free to check them out  here!
