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.

Yesterday I posted this photo and insight
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!!!
