This was my first ever VJ gig!!

This was my first ever VJ gig!! It was at the Astoria, Leicester Square in London for top reggae band Morgan Heritage!

You could say that I threw myself in at the deep end there! But I went on to mix live visuals for many other reggae bands after that. It was an amazing experience 😁

I decided to be come a VJ or Visual Jockey after seeing a concert performance given by the VJ’s as Yeast https://yeastculture.org/

They were mixing video clips in time to the music of Nitin Sawhney http://www.nitinsawhney.com/ I had never seen anything like it in my life.
I chatted to the VJs after the show and they offered to train me to become a VJ myself!!

Thus began a 10 year journey into all things live video, I performed at Apple UK private events, went on tour with jazz stars, played to thousands in Trafalgar Square etc etc
It was a wonderful time in my life.

I hate having my photo taken but here are some rare photos of me through the ages. Some things about me that you may not know… umm 😐 I have a degree in Environmental Biology, I’ve made things all my life including making my own clothes and toys as a child and teenager, I was one of the first VJ’s to be highlighted in the national press as part of the pioneering Yeast Collective, I sang ‘I will survive’ with Gloria Gaynor!! That’s it for now! Hopefully I will post more tidbits for the rest of October

Today I posted this little video showing you how to turn my Nubian mask design into a greetings card!!

Stay tuned for more little updates throughout the month of October!!!
