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.
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!
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.
