I am an artist working in sound, installation, performance and moving image. In my practice, I respond to cultural and social migration by engaging language, rhythm, and origin. 

Among current core concepts I am working with are hybridity, worldbuilding, and psychogeography, drawing on the writings of Homi K. Bhabha and Raymond Williams. I adopt a research-based, interdisciplinary approach that allows for creating projects that expand our perspectives and reflect ourselves in our surroundings; to find moments of 'togetherness,' if only temporary.

Beginnings are commonly found within the sonic sphere, through sampling techniques, electronics, music concrete, and analogue recordings. I use samples and layers of audio materials to create alternate possibilities, reclaim parallel histories, and reimagine connections as a starting point. These processes are inspired by pioneers such as Nicolas Collins, BBC Radiophonic Workshop, and Éliane Radigue.

As part of this I have contributed towards radio residencies on Clyde Built Radio, Margate Radio and as an invited guest for Synaptic Island on Resonance FM. Notable performances and exhibitions include Tate Lates at The Tate Modern, Sound Thought, Cafe Oto, REWIRE Festival, and ‘Artists who make Music, Musicians who make Art’ at Queens Park Railway Club curated by Dr. Ross Sinclair. 

Alternative, DIY and experimental platforms and ways of working are important to me, from 2020-21 I completed the alternative professional development as an Associate on the Open School East Assosciates Program. In conjunction with the public program, I invited Laure Provoust to facilitate an online artist-talk and workshop "Dit Learn". In 2021, Dardishi, an African and Arab film festival, entrusted me with the film programming in presented over the month of September. I see curatorial and programming work as an extension of my research methodologies.

Presently, I'm a member of Transmission Gallery's committee.
