Eclectic in nature, my career has provided me with a wealth of experience from writing and teaching to designing and building websites. Educated as an artist with a Doctorate of Philosophy, I have lectured in photography at university level and staged large-scale art works. I have been lucky to work on some fantastic projects, some of which are listed here.

Crafting captivating cultural content for one of Europe's most-loved cities

Creating and managing content for I amsterdam’s English language What’s On (in print and online) kept me on my toes —  you wouldn’t believe how much there is to do in Amsterdam! It was definitely a career highlight and a pleasure to be involved on such an iconic brand.

Weddings, Butterflies & the Sweetest Dreams

Featuring written contributions by Vera Wang and Iris Apfel, Weddings, Butterflies & the Sweetest Dreams is a sumptuous coffee-table book by Hong Kong cake artist Bonnae Gokson. Art direction and design was by This Is Ikon, who I worked with to manage image rights and budget for visual content.

Curating APM Terminals' Instagram feed

With terminals in picturesque locations across the globe, curating APM Terminals’ Instagram feed was a visual delight with some surprises along the way. Gettin’ all humpy with it!


For almost ten years, I edited This Is Ikon’s blog Play. As their roving reporter, I got to discover inspiring creative work. I wrote about design, art, architecture and much more. Super enjoyable!

Divercities handbook

What better way to conclude an EU-funded project than with a handbook summarising four years of in-depth neighbourhood research in 14 countries. I took to this graphic design challenge with relish to produce a publication in record time.

Website for an urban geography research project in three European cities

I designed and built this UCL-led website for a project researching property markets in London, Amsterdam and Paris.

Academic website showcasing research achievements

Designed to promote Doctor Professor Tuna Taşan-Kok’s international work and research projects, this website’s original purpose was to support her application for promotion to Professor at the University of Amsterdam.
