About me
I am a narrative focused producer with a specialisation in content development, design production and project management. My tertiary studies emphasized best practice interpretation and efficient exhibition production, particularly within practical contexts such as creative law, access and multidisciplinary communication. Before leaving Australia I was supporting the design of the Gold Coast City Gallery’s new purpose built gallery alongside local government and selected architects. Prior to this I was involved in large 3D projects like the Asia-Pacific Triennials of Contemporary Art, and imaginative digital collection initiatives like Google Arts & Culture. Now based in London I have been facilitating collaborations between artists, technologists and scientific researchers, often including corresponding events, off-site and digital offers. My ability to work collaboratively across disciplines means my expertise has expanded beyond visual arts to include science, design and technology. My project aspirations align strongly with cross-disciplinary collaborations that demand a mix of practical and theoretical application, and I excel within opportunities that demand innovation, diversity, and imaginative teamwork.

Serpentine Galleries are a leading international platform investigating the impact of art, architecture and design on society.
