Project Fio

So since I finished with NTW a few months back I have been busy quietly thinking about how I takeover the world..................... 

Only playing, I have been busy working on various projects and thinking of how my career unfolds over the coming few years.  There is much to ponder and many opportunities that have arisen and many that have sailed by.  However I am keen to understand and investigate my role and place within Arts and Cultural…

2 days to go.......

Ooooops this was supposed to go out 2 days ago!

My first couple days in Tokyo

So I am writing this blog after realising that no matter how much I toss and turn to get back to sleep, jet lag has got me and my body clock isn't willing to let me be- think tomorrow will be difficult, bring on the coffee!

I arrived on Sunday having left a snowy London Heathrow.  It wasn't as warm as I had hoped, didn't have much joy with sim card at the airport and then thought I had taken the wrong train from the airport to the apartments.  But actually the train was right and I…

My last 'Assembly' as Creative Associate

Two years ago I embarked on a journey from London to be interviewed for the role of Creative Associate at NTW. I returned to the big smoke thinking that I had failed miserably as my interview went quite bad.  The 'Wales' section in my future autobiography was to remain a figment of my imagination.  However surprisingly I was given a reprieve, which I grabbed with both hands.  I arrived at the second interview prepped and ready to give an account of myself which was a proper reflection of me.…
