Founder and director
Carrot Patch Content + Curatorial
I am a freelance writer and curator for museums, businesses, government, festivals and not-for-profit organisations.
I provide content writing, editing and proof reading services to ensure you communicate with clarity.
I create stories through exhibitions and interpretative writing to enable museums, communities and heritage places to share their purpose.
My top three skills
Analysis – I can quickly identify what matters and what doesn’t. I am an independent and creative thinker with a consultative approach to gather the information and research we need.
Clarity – All good communication is about creating clarity. It is only with my skills of analysis that I can create clarity. I like nothing better than taking something difficult and making it clear for others.
Meaning – It is only when we understand the 'why' that we can make effective and sensitive decisions. We must know what we hope to achieve, to change and to create. Effective communication captures that 'why' with clarity.
I studied at the ANU, University of Sydney and University of Canberra - each for a different qualification. I then taught and worked in museum education. I loved working with passionate educators and beautiful historic objects.
I like to grow and learn so I then worked in education policy for the Australian Government. This experience taught me the valuable skills of project management and gave me a solid understanding of how government functions.
Seeking a creative way of living and working, I became a freelance consultant in 2009. Since then I've written all sorts of words, created a range of permanent and temporary exhibitions, acted as story consultant on a suite of short films and immersed myself in the world of interpretative digital technology.
