Writing – Projects

About

 

I grew up in western Canada (that's me in the above photo at Heron Rocks, Hornby Island, BC, sometime in the 1980s) then moved to London in 2000. I went to art school and then worked on staff at a music and art magazine, running their digital platforms and online editorial. I'm into music, art and movies. I've made a few films, as well as exhibited work in shows and curated exhibitions. Check out some selected writing and projects and hopefully you'll get that I'm interested in the dynamics between sound, moving image and story. I currently write and make films and produce other digital projects.
