My background has grown out of artistic, philosophical and research practices, that span embodied immersion, group process, communal engagement, event curation, public policy, arts pedagogy, research methodology, and philosophy of creative process. Currently I practice as a sonic, social and spatial artist, graphic designer, and philosopher of liveliness.

I’ve worked in many project direction and support roles across university and arts sectors over the last 15 years (at QUT, Griffith University, Brisbane City Council and arts groups including Theatre of Thunder, Compost Composers, Super Critical Mass) and worked with practitioners from many fields and disciplines. I’m not a content advisor and likely not an expert in your field. The advantage is that I focus on the shape and clarity of what you already have in you, rather than import from my own background.
