I was born in London, the suburbs, then moved to Edinburgh where I went to school. I spent a lot of that time staring out of the window, so perhaps it was natural for me to go to art school. I did my foundation year in Newcastle, then my degree in Liverpool. I moved back to Edinburgh briefly then to London for good. I worked in prop making for West End shows, then back stage for a bit, and then I did an MA in Communication, Culture, and Society at Goldsmiths.
I taught for 12 years, mostly in London and the South East, teaching every art school and latterly multimedia subject going. My hourly paid fun was terminated when I was given the golden noose of 'a job'. I didn't last long before becoming chronically and irrecoverably ill. Since then I have spent 10 years or so persuing Buddhist meditation at The London Buddhist Centre, then moved up the Lea to Tottenham and stared at swans for two years. Now, I have moved to EC1 and spend my time walking with my dog or exploring the Barbican with my camera. Over the last year I have been Instagramming, microblogging, and walking the streets of the near East End.
