London Youth Awards
This event was a little special for me. I recently left London Youth to finally commit to photography, and they have been incredibly supportive - they continue to hire me regularly to meet their photography needs! Additionally, when working at London Youth, having an awards ceremony was something that was on the plans, so it’s awesome seeing…
Yesterday, I was amongst the energy and passion at the “Emergency Protest: Defend EU Citizens’ Right to Remain” Protest, organised by the NUS International Students’ Campaign, The People’s Assembly Against Austerity, and People’s Momentum.

Rocking Ur Teens / Girls Conference
I left the conference inspired.
It was awesome to see the young ladies come to the event with typical teenage “enthusiasm,” but leave feeling honestly inspired by the incredible speakers. The Rocking Ur Teens team did an amazing job.
Here is a visual storyline of the day!
Event: Tick The Bucket
On a random Saturday, I was about to go to enjoy an evening of bouldering. Before doing so, I decided to have fun in a ball-pit. Upon entering, I met Oska, the ball-pit warden. We got chatting about the ball-pit, life and other things, little did I know that I…

January comes, and I hear that he manages to get himself a monthly slot with Birthdays in Dalston, where some of these musicians have a platform…
Creative Opps & My Life My Say: Undivided Brexit
Walk with me here. It’s 7pm, you’re in Stoke Newington, on a Wednesday night. What do you do? You have post-Brexit conversations with others who are in their 20s and 30s, of course. Right? And to top it off, the setting for this interesting dialogue? The basement of a bar/cafe

This is What I Do
I’ve never been the most creative of individuals, however, my love for the visual arts has always been within me. From impressionist paintings of Claude Monet to the renowned film-making of Martin Scorsese, I have loved and admired those who can create something for us to not only be spectators…
