London born and bred, I spent over a decade in Madrid and Barcelona where I was the lead singer of an underground punk band Debutant Disco/TheTabloid Queens. A regular feature on the Madrid club scene in the 2000s, the band played venues such as the Apollo in Barcelona and London's Roundhouse.

My side hustle in Spain was teaching Business English to executives, and I have worked in various roles within the education sector ever since. My most recent teaching experience has been with refugees and asylum seekers. 

I am the director of my own company where I manage the estate of my late mother, Poly Styrene, lead singer of X-Ray Spex. I also manage her artistic archive and have recently co-curated my first exhibition of her work.

The book I co-authored about my mother's life was recently published by Omnibus Press, and a documentary film I am making, Poly Styrene: I Am a Clichè is currently in production.

Through these various roles, I have gained valuable insight into the world of music, art, and entertainment as well as film production, copyright, licensing and publishing.
