I write long-form essays about art, design, and the future. I've been published widely: in Real Life, Broadly, Adult, Canadian Art, Ocula, Mask, NUVO, and Yishu, among others. 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, and by brands such as Red Bull and Peroni.
I research shifts in politics, technology, consumerism, leadership, and charitable giving in order to deliver clear, precise reports on the state of culture today. My reporting is supported by academic research, expert interviews, media analysis, and data analysis.
At Winsor Gallery, I directed successful PR campaigns, gaining international media acclaim from the BBC, Globe and Mail, Huffington Post and more. A favourite project was place-branding 'The Flats', a cultural district of over 16 contemporary art galleries now officially recognized by The City of Vancouver. Day-to-day duties involved developing the careers of over 40 leading contemporary artists through managing exhibitions, district-wide events, and educational initiatives; and acting as an in-house resource for art advisors, driving acquisitions by major museums as well as private and corporate collections.
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.
