For the last 10 years, I have been working as a creative mentor for young people who have disengaged from education with the experimental educational research charity 'Protégé'.
Together with my partner and artist Samantha Y. Huang, we co-run the arts organisation 'IMA Studio ' which is working to disrupt the status quo in Fine Art and generate new innovative ways for artists to have better, longer, more sustainable careers.
