I was born in 1971 to an Egyptian mother and English father, raised in London, and after completing my degree at Goldsmiths, University of London spent the following 4 years living and working in Padova, Italy; New York City and Tokyo.

I returned to London in 1998 and over the following 5 years continued to work and train with a range of crafts and processes.

In April 2003, I started to explore Seiki, a body of work developed by the Japanese Shiatsu Master Akinobu Kishi-san. On the 14th April during a private session with him in London I experienced a powerful awakening and in that moment brought through the origins of a body of work I named Deetell.  Deetell is the primary foundation for my own artwork. I also work with clients offering Deetell in a mentoring context as well as teaching group classes and workshops.

From September 2014 - September 2016, I painted as part of Billy Childish's painting collective 'Heckel's Horse' in Chatham Docks.
I now paint and work out of my own studio in East London.
