Impact Projects

I have created projects and events that have had a lasting impact on communities and organisations. From an in-conversation event with the Honourable Julia Gillard AC in front of over 300 distinguished guests, to the commissioning of a Mirka Mora tram across the city of Melbourne, I have enjoyed having an influence across the creative landscape across impactful projects.

Culture Projects


My own family, cultural and lived experience has been an inspiration that deeply influences my work. I find great joy in engaging with others, exploring the sources of their creativity and nurturing and enviornment that fosters expressive freedom. I have created a curated writers space, a podcasts about the writing process and podcast and cultural identity
