← Jury

I had no real career plan apart from a desire to work with interesting people, making culturally relevant work and to not have to wear a suit. I am delighted and lucky that my ‘making it up as I go along’ attitude and obsession with art, video and music has actually landed jobs at places including the Institute of Contemporary Arts, Blink Productions, Forever, Somesuch and as Head of Video at Dazed Magazine.

Over the years, I have been lucky enough to develop projects with extraordinary directors including FKA Twigs, Christina Yuan, Focus Creeps, Kristoffer Borgli, The Daniels, Cecile Emeke, Petra Collins, BRTHR, Clayton Vomero, Billy Lumby, Ewen Spencer, Dan Emmerson, Amelia Dimoldenberg, Lucy Luscombe, Luca, Mollie Mills, Marcus McSweeney, Joshua Gordon, Harley Weir, Dexter Navy and many more.

I have worked with talented producers and extraordinary talent in front of the camera, on music videos, short films, feature docs and TV series. Currently working as part of the team at Warner Music developing original formats for a range of exciting commissioners and artists.

What preoccupies you most at present?
The guilt and anxiety of unanswered emails VS living my best life and trying to be a better person.
