I am an early-career producer and arts administrator currently working on Gadigal Land, New South Wales. I work across artistic programs and curatorship to further public engagement with art, artists and ideas through unique and inclusive audience experiences.
I have worked in roles centered on audience engagement and production at the Art Gallery of South Australia; WOMADelaide; Adelaide Festival; Tandanya National Aboriginal Cultural Institute; Carclew; and as Team Leader of the Australian Pavilion at Venice Biennale in 2013; as well as co-directing FELTspace Gallery; and producing independent contemporary music festivals Half Strange (2016, 2017) and BungSound (2017).
From 2016-2018, I was employed as the inaugural Teen Programs Officer at the Art Gallery of South Australia, programming and producing Neo, the Gallery’s free bi-monthly festival-style event for 13 to 17 years olds, which regularly attracts an audience of 600+ teens. Here, I also worked closely with the Gallery’s Director, Nick Mitzevich and Assistant Director, Creative Programs, Lisa Slade to program and produce festival and exhibition openings; talks, tours, lectures and symposia; art fairs and auctions; school holiday and GP workshops; performance; live music; and other after-hours events.
I completed a Bachelor of Visual Arts, First Class Honours in 2011 (UniSA) and am currently completing an MA in Curating and Cultural Leadership (UNSW). I have exhibited nation wide and received professional grants from the Adelaide City Council, ArtsSA, Australia Council, Carclew, Helpmann Academy, and NAVA.
