About me

At age 24 I set up Kollektiv Gallery, which took 20 artists through a programme of crowdfunding, opening a pop up gallery, running workshops and events - over and over, with different people every time graduating from the Kollektiv experience. I started telling my story and sharing my business model up and down the country with universities and schools. I eventually found myself in New Zealand, where I started the Cyber Nectar Art Festival in Wellington. Now I'm based in London, I work at the Hayward Gallery and also offer project management, consulting and producing to other creative groups, for example The Big Art Herstory Group.
