I apply critical sensibility to commercial and creative contexts.Locked Pro Plan feature
With three years of experience in behavioural analysis and market research, I have the expertise to support your projects from ideation to completion — whether that means decoding ethnographic findings, making sense of complex media narratives, or writing top-level reports with editorial polish.
My essays and criticism on identity, technology, and power have been published in Art Review, Canadian Art, Broadly, Real Life, and more. Small Gods, my book on drones in contemporary art, will be published by Zero Books in 2020. In 2018, I was awarded the Canada Council for the Arts' Research and Creation grant, enabling me to focus on this project full-time. I've also been commissioned to write or speak for institutions such as The Rennie Collection, The Plugin Institute of Contemporary Art, Wil Aballe Art Projects, Access Gallery, and Emily Carr University of Art + Design.
Commissioned and edited reports on culture and human behaviour for brands like Sony Pictures, Ogilvy, Mother, Channel 4, and Edelman. Built up an international stable of freelance writers, working with them to finesse concepts, insights, and tone of voice. Worked closely with the Editor in Chief and Head of Insight to develop a global content strategy targeting a knowledgeable, expert audience. Presented keynotes and hosted panels about major cultural shifts, with a focus on diversity and inclusion.
Contributing to Canvas8's clear editorial direction, I stayed ahead of industry trends and cultural changes, rigorously planned and maintained the US publishing schedule, and commissioned and edited exceptional content. As Canvas8 expanded to New York and LA, I developed a market-specific content strategy and forged relationships with US writers and experts well-placed to meet client needs.
Published well-researched, compelling articles tracking changes in culture, from the #metoo movement to the rise of health tech. Supported on bespoke research projects for major Silicon Valley technology companies, working across media, ethnographic, and quantitative analysis.
My research specialises in the intersection of art and politics, with my final dissertation analysing changes in visual perspectives in relation to the rise of drone and surveillance technologies.
