  • Talks and Lectures

    I have delivered talks and lectures on my SHIT LONDON  project for universities, creative agencies and talk events across Britain and the world (well, only New Zealand but that's really far away so...) - telling people the inspiring tale of how even the silliest of self initiated projects can take you to unexpected places in life. I have also spoken on social media, blogging and the art turning of blogs into successful books. I was also a regular speaker at the Guardian Masterclasses event series.

    Alongside those I have also performed special SHIT LONDON shows, which take audiences into a world of misspelt signage, opportunistic graffiti, terrible puns and bleakly humorous scenes from the city. They’re a bit like holiday slideshows…but less excruciating, slightly funnier…and with a LOT more photos of fried chicken shops.

    If you would like to make an enquiry about me talking at your event please use the CONTACT page.

    I have spoken at:

    The Guardian, Guardian Masterclasses, Central St Martins – University of the Arts London, Shoreditch House, Tower of London, Auckland Museum of Art, Wilderness Festival, London Photomonth, Fitch Brand Consultancy, Portsmouth University, Cheltenham University, Kingston University…and more.
