Futuro House
In 2013 I saved a dilapidated 1960s built fibreglass Futuro House from ruin, and managed the deconstruction and transportation of it from South Africa to the UK. I spent a year researching, planning and executing its restoration. I have delivered two installs of the project to date, both on central London rooftops involving road closures and crane lifts. Initially shown at Matt’s Gallery, then subsequently at Central Saint Martins’s, it is now on display in Le Havre, France, until September 24 2018. I am presently planning future landings for the Futuro House, activity within it and ongoing restoration.

Visiting Lecturer / guest speaker
As part of my ongoing research around utopian and counter culture movements, modular architecture, and innovation in materials, I have extensive public speaking experience, focusing on on the history of prefabricated utopian architecture, the Futuro House, its successes and failures, and the relevance today of these ideals. Recent lectures, symposiums and corporate talks have included Bath Royal Literary & Scientific Institution, London Architecture Festival, Vision London, WGSN, Central Saint Martins BA architecture, Hereford College of Arts, Brighton University, as well as hosting sold-out public tours of the Futuro House whilst it was at Central Saint Martins. I am presently writing and compiling a publication around these areas of research for publication in 2020.

2016 – 2018
Creative Producer, Central Saint Martins
Initially managing the programming, execution and public experience for five different gallery spaces within the college, the role broadened to include numerous other public facing events. Working with academics, students, administration as well as external individuals, companies and sponsors I pull together the public offering for the college. Recent projects include Creative Unions, Altered Realities, and the LMVH partnership launch. I left this post in 2018 to focus on personal projects, but continue to work in this role in a freelance capacity.

2011 – 2014
Gallery Director, Down Stairs
I set up Down Stairs with the aim of offering a diverse visual arts experience, working with artists from a variety of backgrounds, across all media. Exhibiting in 5000 sq ft of gallery space as well as the grounds of the house in which the gallery was located, we supported artists at the early stages of their career, showing emerging artists shoulder to shoulder with established names. My responsibilities stretched from top to bottom, both devising the programme, curating & installing exhibitions. Alongside the gallery programme of Down Stairs I initiated, managed and delivered a residency scheme at Great Brampton House, giving artists the opportunity to retreat to an purpose built isolated cabin, and work from a studio & workshop complex we developed from an old stable block. I gave residents first hand support and technical assistance in delivering their works across a varied scope of disciplines.
In 2013 Down Stairs was listed in the Hot 100 artist-led initiatives published in A-N that aimed to draw attention to some of the most superb activity being facilitated by emerging independent artists and curators in the UK.

2007 -
Director, Names Records
Following much experience working in the music industry for labels such as Mute Records, Warner Music, London Records, 679 Recordings and One Little Indian, I set up Names Records to initially release the records of Alela Diane. Her debut album was chosen as Album of the Year by Rough Trade Shops in 2007 and has to date sold in excess of 100,000 copies throughout Europe. We have subsequently released critically acclaimed and commercially successful records by Caitlin Rose, She Keeps Bees, Steelism, and Headless Heroes.
