I read some Edith Sitwell Poems as part of Nicholas Phan's album of Benjamin Britten's Still Falls The Rain
I hosted a series of travel documentaries for Sky Atlantic, where I walked around various cities in the UK and Ireland, finding out their urban secrets.
Each show took the form of a walk, during which I would come across a motley collection of celebrities, locals and experts who showed me hidden gems in London (2 shows), Brighton, Bristol, Liverpool, Newcastle, Dublin and Glasgow
My first ever photography exhibit was launched at thew Andaz hotel in West Hollywood on April 5th 2012.
