I'm a media scholar and artist working across creative industries in London, UK.
I’m a culture researcher, artist, and art publisher working across diversity and inclusion research and creative industries. In 2017 I co-founded the London-based multidisciplinary studio project Very Tender in Hackney, where I work as a media artist, and I’m the former Director of the Steel Bananas Art Collective in Toronto (2008-2018). I concurrently conduct research on culture and media semiotics as a Senior Social Scientist at the London office of the global behavioural insights practice Canvas8.
My artistic practice straddles the boundaries between poetics and media, manifesting in artist books, films, performances, and zine-making. I hold a PhD in media and, as my primary practice, my work emerges from a preoccupation with text and book-making.
I'm the the author of numerous artist books and my art has been featured/ published/ exhibited in Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, New York, Vienna, and London.
