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 initiative '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.
