I am a Creative Producer living on the Sunshine Coast. I am passionate about collaboration and connecting artists and communities with radical arts experiences which offer potential for future thinking. I currently work as a Senior Producer for Horizon Festival and for PANNZ Arts Market as the International Delegate Liaison. I also work on various independent producing projects that align with my values.

Ko Taranaki tōku maunga
Ko Oākura tōku awa
Nō Oākura ahau
I grew up in Oākura in a ram shackled bach that perched right on Taranaki's west coast. I spent many hours of my childhood watching the sea and being in awe of the power of the landscape. When I was 13 my whānau relocated to Australia and I experienced deep yearning for the land. I have spent time in both countries throughout my life.
How I got where I am today
People believing in me through job opportunities and industry mentorships. Saying yes to things that are out of my comfort zone and remaining curious.
My whānau are incredibly close to me and I dearly love my sister, parents, husband and two boys who are 17 and 13. I am also incredibly close to my extended family. I also feel blessed to have so many excellent friendship and work whānau.
I have a thing for treehouses and these beauties are pretty fine https://www.projectone.co/arch...

What is the role of artists in changing our systems? This is a series for artists and arts workers to explore big ideas, how they relate to conditions in our sector, with provocations and opportunities to start imagining what change might look like.
Field Trip - Arts, Science, Tech and Environment Symposium
An online symposium exploring ideas of basic income and the need for an approach to economy that puts creativity and care at its centre. Led by a panel of artists, researchers, economists, scientists and philosophers, the symposium responds to current and ongoing planetary crises, and positions creativity and social ecology as integral to shaping policy and systems of value.
