I do PR and business development through partnerships, production & publicity. I approach communications and lead generation with a fresh perspective, creating stories centred on culture, social change and campaigns that matter. I'm a creative entrepreneur at heart, which means I'm always ready roll-up my sleeves to make and share opportunities and big ideas for brands, places, and people.
My portfolio of current clients include: East Street Arts
(I'm currently delivering a big strategy and storytelling project), the UNBOXED2022
creativity festival, and I'm part of Screen Yorkshire's FLEX
cohort exploring new types of agile storytelling.
Recent clients over the past two years include: Durham University (funded by the AHRC, I was entrepreneur in residence across the Arts & Humanities faculty, helping to shape impact for arts research), Reuben Feels
(an immersive storytelling agency), arts & science organisation Invisible Dust
, and the newly established October! Collective
, and the Giudecca Art District
in Venice (a new quarter for emerging artists. I've continued to work for major film distributors (such as eOne entertainment and Studio Canal) alongside independent film producers.

, the UK's biggest funding body for social entrepreneurs. I've worked with brands including Hyundai, Lucozade and Pizza Express; past culture clients included Channel 4, Secret Cinema, Punchdrunk and the Royal Shakespeare Company; and funders such as Comic Relief and Big Lottery. I've also done four international projects - in Tokyo, Delhi, Moscow & Belgrade - through the British Council's Creative Entrepreneur programme, produced stand-up comedy club nights, made nature podcasts, and won a global prize for innovation in play.
