After leaving Teddy Hall in 2014 with a Fine Art degree, I began working on installing sculptures into derelict spaces in London.

This kick started my journey in urban planning and I subsequently completed a Masters in International Real Estate and Planning at University College London. I am now a Chartered Town Planner specialising in the cultural, heritage and creative sector, advising a wide range of internationally-renowned institutions. This role enables me to work on installing bigger sculptures within the built environment.

Through meeting the Chair of Wilton’s Music Hall at a Teddy Hall alumni event in London, I have recently been appointed a trustee to help look after the Grade II listed building for future generations. This would not have been possible without the Hall’s alumni network.
