As a writer for publications like British GQ & The Guardian, he tells stories about the emerging voices and sounds of contemporary Britain.

As an Ethnographic Researcher & Strategist he is able to dive deep into communities and cultures across the country, delivering insights, strategy and people-driven stories for brands, agencies including adidas, Nike, McCann, We Are Social and more.
To put things simply, he gets under the skin of the country and tell stories about what he finds. The medium may be features in The Guardian or ethnographic studies with Nike, documentary’s with production companies or award-winning campaigns with adidas.

He is simply an inspiration for those seeking to bring an honest and reflective voice to British Culture.
