Work Experience

2024 — Now

Helping overworked creative business owners complete the tasks they don’t have time for.

2022 — 2023

Helped Blueberry quadruple their email open rate and accelerate their social media engagement. I've also overseen a soft rebrand and produced many custom designs. Glad that my efforts here contributed to the continued success of hundreds of freelance editors, designers and visual artists.

2020 — 2021

I co-designed a major online hub and covid-safe protocol for Film & TV students that allowed them to keep making films during Covid. I also handled social media and set up some great remote classes with industry experts.

2018 — 2020

I helped organise, install, promote and host over 50 exhibitions and events in 2 years while also coordinating the galleries' digital marketing activities and assisting with charity initiatives and much more. Truly one of the best student jobs I could have asked for!



Contributed to a practice‑led research project, capturing behind-the-scenes shots, designing promotional content, and co-developing a social media campaign. Our efforts increased awareness of Virtual Production, emphasizing the need for standardized workflows to support emerging filmmakers.


Helped produce a hybrid live/recorded TEDx event. I built and wrote copy for a user-friendly website targeted at attendees, designed a TEDx sign, and coordinated with external contractors to build set elements.

Lockdown Cinema at University of Greenwich

Coordinated a series of Covid-safe film screenings and designed posters for each. Each film was followed by a Q&A to discuss the highlights and learnings. I loved working on these events because they mixed education and entertainment to capture students' interest at a time during the pandemic when engagement was at its lowest.

Digital Arts, BA Hons at University of Greenwich

Tools, resources, opportunities, and inspiration for artists and makers on


I edited and translated an interview between Nicoletta De Santoli & Domenico De Leo. This is featured in the 3rd edition of Passing Notes. *Cover art: Tim McFarlane, Seen and Heard Today Tomorrow Forever, 2022*


A micro invitation to lose yourself in the unspoken, this expanded poem encourages reflection on the intangible nature of time.


Web-based work incorporating poetry, photographs, and semi-generative audio-visual elements. These fragments reveal themselves as the user interacts - almost by instinct - with the browser's canvas. The work articulates personal sentiments about "home", what (and who) makes one, and how to find meaning living between homes.

Can re-framing social media content as a stream of consciousness tell the story of how it came to be?

Three Years contains all my tweets from April 2016 to February 2019 – more than a thousand entries. I presented the book at the opening of "528" (an exhibition I co-curated) where I performed an uninterrupted 2:30 hrs live reading.

Exhibition Title Bot

A semi-autonomous program that generated and tweeted 500+ exhibition titles for fictional art exhibitions, from the hilarious to the grotesque. It tweeted daily for two years between 2018 - 2021.


Interactive web-work based on Clemens Meyer's homonymous story. The site guides you through extracts from the story, accompanied by corrupted sketches and a forklift spun in space. The whole is soundtracked by a music piece I composed to enrich the experience.


As a concert photographer for the webzine Getintothis, I captured shots of concerts in Liverpool and the Merseyside area. My gig photography portfolio includes artists like Nas, Idles, Real Estates, Tom Grennan, Nathan Fake, and Stealing Sheep.


I made, released and performed music under my own name and the aliases Mountain King and Young Offices. I played in cover bands, dj'd and performed my own music at informal gigs in Italy and England. I also studied and practiced guitar, composition and music technology for several years until 2017, when my creative practice expanded into other areas.


Mailchimp Foundations from Mailchimp

Yay – I'm Mailchimp Certified! I love using Mailchimp to create engaging, targeted marketing campaigns and dive deep into data analysis to ensure they resonate perfectly.

Inbound Marketing from HubSpot Academy

Gained a better grasp of content marketing, lead generation, automation, inbound marketing, performance analysis, and reporting.

Creating Digital Content from Institute of Coding & University of Leeds

Learned best practices for content creation, critical examination, messaging, tone, language, and effective online communication.

Curating on the Web from Node Center for Curatorial Studies

Gained some really cool and sometimes useful skills to help plan and deliver online exhibitions, and promote them through digital channels.


Feed Your Demons and Meet the Ally

Cross-referencing mythology, pop culture, the supernatural, and digital selfhood, the works in this ZIP-compressed exhibition explore fears, desires, and obstacles artists face in times of crisis and isolation.

Curated by Magda Żołędź (of ONE Project) and I, the exhibition opened with an online event featuring artwork walkthroughs, studio visits, and Q&As.


This online exhibition and accompanying catalogue explore the impact of the internet and contemporary digital culture on the practice of emerging artists and curators. This was my major graduate project while at the University of Greenwich.

The exhibition featured works by Enes Alba, Atom Chen, Dario Bucheli, and Perce Jerrom. The catalogue includes an essay I wrote alongside Q&As with Lisa Barnard, Pita Arreola-Burns, Elliott Burns, Valentina Peri, Ghislaine Boddington, and Walter Corneli.


Co-curated with David Waterworth, this exhibition focused on four University of Greenwich graduates—John Joseph Watters, Grace Diggens, Marilia Lezou, and Rhiannon Ashley—working in cross-disciplinary fields that impact our environment and community.

Review of the EP "Feels" that I released as Mountain King in 2016 by the Italian music magazine Rockit.


2021 — 2022

I actively participated in regular meetings with the CPP committee, assisting with writing an open call, reviewing submissions for an upcoming exhibition, and providing input on future projects.


The Marlowe: A Copywriting Challenge

I challenged myself to condense The Marlowe's Summer 2023 Season brochure from 56 pages to a 700-word press release, using only my editing skills and a metaphorical highlighter. It was an excellent opportunity to hone my writing skills in a new area.
