Hello. I’m a cultural programmer + producer.

I’ve spent over a decade working in the grey areas of large cultural organisations. Firstly at the BBC, which I joined as a production trainee in 2008, and more recently at the Barbican, where I’m responsible for a public programme of experimental installations and events which (mostly) happen in and around the arts centre’s vast foyer spaces.

I’m also a father, photographer, and other things!

Here are a handful of links to things I’ve written, said or worked on:

📢 A talk I gave in April 2021 about how unlikely communities of people from different disciplines shape the public programme I manage at the Barbican

✍️ An essay me and my colleague Razia Jordan wrote in August 2019 about our experiences of building a public programme for an arts centre’s foyer spaces

📢 A talk I gave in September 2018 about the impacts of digital culture on cultural programming

⚙️ An experimental year-long venue which hosted a programme of 90+ events exploring what it means to be human in the face of technological change

🎧 A temporary ‘cinema for listening’ in the Barbican’s foyers

📹 A trippy short film exploring the Crossrail tunnels being built beneath London
