Hi! I joined the team back in January 2019. After completing my degree in Art History and Visual Culture at Exeter University, I was eager to return to my hometown. I’m born and bred in Westcliff-on-Sea, and feel so proud to be a part of the local creative scene in Essex through my work at Metal. In a past life, I was a chef at a local vegan restaurant, so my favourite projects involve Metal’s tradition of bringing people and artists around the dining table, where inspiring discussions emerge with each bite of food. With my background in hospitality, I love to work with and around people striving to support, champion and share creative activity to a wide range of communities. When I’m not in an excel spreadsheet, I’m (attempting) paddleboarding, eating chip shop chips (extra vinegar please) and rewatching ‘Fleabag’ or ‘The Office’.
