More recently - inspired by authors such as Mark Fisher and Marc Augé - I have began to formulate a heavily research-based side practice, investigating the intersection of sociology, culture, design and technology. I spent 2018 out working internships - with de_form in Budapest, and Grey London and Droga5 in London.
