I began my career as a journalist in California, where I won awards for feature, commentary and investigative writing. I have written journalism and essays consistently since then and have also published two books, Lost in Space and The Emissary, which you can buy via all the usual online sources. Some journalism and essay highlights are playfully presented on this page.
I’ve recently undertaken commissions that more closely connect with my work in Facilitation and Nimble Fish through writing that helps organisations position ideas, projects, research and people in the public eye. To date, I’ve done this kind of work for the London School of Economics and the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. I’ve also developed learning resources to help teachers and young people harness the power of arts and creativity. Recent projects include the Tate Year 3 Project, an epic school-driven artwork created by Turner Prize winning artist (and Oscar winning director) Steve McQueen displayed at Tate Britain from November 2019 through May 2020, and also Make Art Not War, a suite of creative skills resources based on the commissions of the 14-18 NOW WWI Centenary commissions – more than 50,000 further education students across the UK have engaged with this resource.
