Occupation Freelance computational artist
Country United Kingdom

"Studying at Goldsmiths opened up doors to new opportunities that were made accessible through new skills. I had no previous skills in programming, and I am now able to confidently work with code and integrate it into my artistic practice. 

I attended many Hackathons, all of which helped me to gain confidence using my new skills. The people who I met at Goldsmiths, both lecturers and peers have been instrumental to my success. Very encouraging, supportive and questioning. Allowing me to be the best artist I could be.

I work creating my own computational art pieces which incorporate my dance practice, researching the different ways computation can be used in dance performance and choreography. I'm now working at Goldsmiths as a teaching assistant, assisting on various different modules within the Department of Computing. I've also been awarded a residency with Goldsmiths  and the V&A. I hope to use this to continue my research and practice in making non-human dance performers."
