While studying at Reading I worked, part time for the Students' Union, producing their publicity material. I have also spent time on the self motivated project "Dirtbox soundsystem" which is a collective group of friends, that organises and promotes events in West Yorkshire. I have produced all the Publicity material for Dirtbox including the website (www.dirtboxsoundsystem.com).
The art I created while studying at Reading was based upon experiences in the perception of sound, influenced by the sound-system culture I am a part of with my contemporaries in Dirtbox Soundsystem.

Education Summary: 2007 – 2011 Reading University BA (Hons) Art: Awaiting results
The course focused on independent studio practice, I was given the freedom to explore all forms of creative production. My practice centred on the expression of energetic sound forms and most often took shape as installation pieces. Other modules included a contextual lecture series focusing on modern and contemporary thinkers such as Foucault and Ranciere. In my third year I studied abroad in France for 3 months, which was an excellent opportunity to experience alternative methods of production and artistic practice. Working beside established artists from around the world that had collaborated with contemporary groups such as Grey World taught me to push my work towards a professional standard.
