As an interpretative curator and writer, I have developed a range of products including exhibitions, events, films, reports and books. I deliver creative vision, manage projects and create content. All my work is infused with a passion for telling stories that matter.
I am also experienced in writing all sorts of words including media releases, website copy, books, articles and exhibition text.
Past clients have included state government economic development / tourism, local councils, festivals and events, museums and historic houses.
My top three skills are:
Analysis – I can quickly identify what matters and what doesn’t. My ability to identify what matters in complex issues and information is what I call my relevance filter. I am an independent and creative thinker with a consultative approach to gather the information and research we need.
Clarity – I value simplicity and clarity, and I think others do too. 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.
Direction – The question of ‘why’ is important to me, and it is only when we understand the 'why' that we can make effective and sensitive decisions. I need to know what we hope to achieve, to change and to create. Effective communication captures that 'why' with clarity.
