‘Born in The Netherlands, and raised in Mulanje, Malawi, I’ve now settled in Amsterdam. I currently spend most of my day-to-day time in my studio, Pre-Reserved [@prereserved], surrounded by other creators and artists. I work on a variety of cool projects with brands and creatives, connecting the right people and ideas for the best outcome.’
