    I studied Fine Art at Byam Shaw and then went on to do a BA in Italian and Industrial Design at UCL and Il Politecnico di Milano. I then stayed in Italy for about seven years, working in advertising as a TV producer, producing short films and adverts. I also worked on brand and strategy management within ad agencies and latterly worked on viral ad campaigns, both on the creative and production side.

    Before applying to the Royal College of Art, I studied Chinese contemporary art and curatorial practices at the Central Academy of Fine Arts, Peking University, Beijing, and the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. I wanted to build up my understanding of contemporary art and curatorial practices, and I thought that the RCA would be the best place for me to develop my academic research.
