WRITING & EDITING
I have been commissioning features and writing stories as the Arts & Culture at Dazed since 2015, but I have also been commissioned to write for magazines such as Riposte, Brick, AnOther, Foam, Crack, Iris Covet Journal, Unseen, and ASOS.
I have also provided copywriting for brands such as adidas Originals, Supra, Napapijri, Diamond Supply Co., NOWNESS, Future Girl Corp, and 3INA.
And interviewed talent for films with Gucci, Diamond Supply Co., Versus Versace, and adidas Originals.
I have also written the introduction to two books; Before Frank by Charles Moriarty, and HABANABOY by Joshua Osborne.
ART BUYING & TALENT OR CREATIVE CONSULTING
I have five years of experience consulting on talent for projects for Dazed’s brand partnerships, as well as Dazed Studio. This includes matching photographers, filmmakers, stylists, and accompanying teams to client briefs, as well as creatively consulting on briefs to ensure they make sense and fit their intended audience, and best amplify their intended message/s.
Since 2016, I have been consulting, providing, and connecting new talent with School of Doodle, which is now called Irregular Labs. In 2017, I helped to organise and curate talent for the London launch event, which included Charlie Craggs, Katheryn Hamnett, Glacier Girl, Antonia Marsh, gal-dem, Mushpit, and many more.
I have also provided talent suggestions for Fader and Somesuch & Co.
CURATION & PRODUCTION
In 2018, I worked with the Rugby Portobello Trust in west London to teach a series of photography workshops to the young people there, alongside Eddie Otchere. The end result was curating the images that the students had shot for a community exhibition in the youth centre. The initiative was the first term of Dazed+Labs, a collaboration I am heading up on behalf of Dazed and Red Hook Labs.
In 2017, I curated my first solo show (sponsored by Melissa Shoes) and oversaw the production of the works and installations and the event itself – from venue to guest list and install. The artists included Ruth Ossai with Ibrahim Kamara, Elizabeth Gabrielle Lee, and Shon Faye.
In 2016, I co-curated an art show with Grace Miceli, which featured many of today’s biggest names in photography, such as Campbell Addy, Nadine Ijewere, Steph Wilson, Maisie Cousins, and Ronan Mckenzie.
PRESENTING & HOSTING
I am a confident public speaker who has three years of hosting panels featuring talent such as Virgil Abloh, Kimberly Drew, and Tyler Mitchell, for clients such as Riposte, Levi’s, Perrier Jouet, Converse x JW Anderson, Photo London, International Center for Photography, Nike, and many more.
