Drawing on personal experiences and observations, LionHeart is heralded as one of the most passionate poetry performers of his generation.
He is a TEDx Speaker, BBC Radio London Presenter, Award Winning Poet and International SpokenWord Performer. Author of debut poetry collection ‘The Mute’s Rebellion’, which excavates memories of social anxiety, selective mutism, upbringing, emotional vulnerability and more.
In 2022 he is honoured to have been selected by the Royal Albert Hall as one of their four 'Associate Artists' as part of a wider push by the Hall to promote greater diversity, innovation and increase young people's engagement with traditional artforms. He will be headlining shows, presenting exclusive commissions and running initiatives for young audiences as part of the scheme. This follows on from his part in the Hall's 150th birthday celebrations in 2021 when he performed as part of David Arnold's ensemble put together to take the audience on a sonic journey through the Hall's first 150 years.
LionHeart presents a chat show on BBC Radio London on Fridays from 10pm-1am focused on discussions around community and worldwide topics. Previously he has also hosted shows on BBC Radio London with a focus on mental health & wellbeing, as well as poetry and music.
He is the first Poet in Residence at the prestigious Saatchi Gallery exploring and creating works in response to the art work, pertaining to mental health.
His work within the architecture industry is extensive. He sees the benefits of architecture for mental health and has recently been made an honorary fellow of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) for his contribution to architecture.
In addition, he is the first Poet in Residence at Grimshaw Architects, Squires & Partners, The Building Centre and other firms, exploring Architecture & Poetry's relationship around emotional inhabitance, and its connection to memory and mental health.
