I am hoping to develop my professional practice by getting involved with publishers making work around topics I feel passionately about as well as organising and curating events. As a creative, I enjoy creating engaging work and experiences through multimedia art and events. I am passionate about communicating theories surrounding identity and culture and will often take inspiration from my own background and family history.
