Tell us about yourself.

Artist, freelance digital image post-production, tutor and specialist technical support in 2d, moving between the Photography department & digital print workshop at CSM.

Involved with students from all pathways, whoever is configuring image work in these areas, original or reproduction. I am building a more structured development backing the design and fine art programmes' needs, for Fashion Communication and MA Photography, configuring digital workflow through 2d and out into industry.

What do you enjoy about your job?

Working in an unstable environment, the shifting atmosphere over semesters counters any programatic aspect.

What's your favourite thing about Central Saint Martins?

The dialogue of ideas, form and methods that reflects the range of chance, cross-disciplinary discussions happening in the workshop and studios.

What advice do you give new students?

Not having a handle on your technical process is a sure way to be involuntarily defined by it.
