Hello! I joined Metal in 2019 after a career rummaging around in London’s museums and galleries. Originally from Stepney in east London, I moved to Leigh-on-Sea in 2006 for a bit of fresh air. What’s brilliant about working for Metal is the variety of people we collaborate with – because we are a multi-arts organisation – in any one day you can speak to poets, painters, musicians, dancers, makers, trouble makers and everything in-between. It makes anything possible. A book I frequently carp on about is ‘The Intellectual Life of the British Working Class’ by Jonathan Rose – one day I will actually have to read finish it!
