I am a published writer and visual artist. I am Deaf and use British Sign Language (BSL) and spoken English.
Over the last 25 years, I have enjoyed a portfolio career across the arts and media spectrum in a variety of roles, including: fashion journalist, arts and film reviewer, arts marketing consultant, public speaker, BSL gallery guide, arts project manager, film director and producer, screenwriter, playwright, TV researcher, TV presenter, proofreader, author, book editor, and arts board trustee – attracting a prominent clientele including Tate, V&A, The Design Museum, Phaidon Press, Modern Art Oxford, The Royal Collections Trust, Arts Council England South-East, BBC, Deafinitely Theatre, Audiovisability, Channel 4, Maverick Television and press including Vogue, Esquire, The Observer, Disability Arts Online, and The Independent.
I am an alumnus of the University of the West of England (UWE), Bristol, and Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, London (MA Fashion Journalism and Promotion, Pass with Distinction). I was the first Deaf student to win one of five heavily subscribed places on the course, the first of its kind in the world.
Proudly neurodivergent, I wear my inattentive ADHD diagnosis like a badge. I live alone in Buckinghamshire with my two children, one of who is a non-verbal wheelchair user with complex needs.
