I am a Creative Strategist, Consultant and Business Leader with 13+ years of experience in brand communication, digital art and creative technology, and a keen interest in organisational structures and positive leadership.

In a time that faces more radical, fast-paced and intersecting challenges than any before it, I believe in the power that designers and artists can unleash in processes of change and innovation – and in our responsibility to use it well.

Since starting out in media arts as a runner, project manager and curator in the early 2000’s, I have been involved in cutting-edge audio-visual production, digital art and experimental design for 20 years – and co-founded FIELD.IO in 2009 as an independent creative studio for new formats of brand experience.

As Managing Director, Business and Strategy Lead, I have built the studio from a founders’ duo to a multidisciplinary team of 25+ with hubs in London and Berlin, and led close collaborations with major brands in including Apple, Google, Meta, IBM, Nike, adidas, Visa, Mercedes- Benz, Lululemon, and IKEA – from commissioned artworks to speculative design projects and enterprise-level generative design systems.

I am a seasoned speaker and panellist at design conferences worldwide, and support female and diverse voices in the creative industries with mentoring and strategic workshops.
