Welcome.
I am a connector and a storyteller.

I told my first story at four. Sitting around with Nan, gathering neighbourhood yarns, is how it all began. And while it has taken many forms over the years across many mediums and miles, the story remains the same. From creative copy and emotive content, large-scale immersive events and heartfelt exhibitions, public talks and art installations, I am driven by one underlying desire, to see people do more, together.

Through my work as a creative director, producer, curator and artist, I bring people, ideas and projects together across different disciplines and industries. I amplify their stories generating greater public engagement with their critical messages and encouraging new audiences to be more active participants in their work.

My focus currently is on nature and well-being and how we can bring artists, scientists and creatives together to better understand the benefits of nature in the design of our urban landscapes and lives.

Through many of my projects I contribute research to RMIT University’s Contemporary Art and Social Transformation group. Here, I work with emerging and established Australian artists to explore critical social and environmental issues.

My balance (& sanity) comes from throwing on a backpack, a load of camera gear and escaping to a wild landscape. I am usually accompanied by my beautiful, overachieving but humble husband, Hugh and his guitar. You can see my escapes on Instagram and on VSCO. I have two beautiful children that put up with a crazy amount of lounge dancing in our little Melbourne home!
