About

With interests in writing, music and contemporary art, I’ve published profiles, essays, features, interviews and reviews through The Age, Meanjin (Online), The Australian, Overland, The Lifted Brow (Online), un Magazine, Art Guide Australia, RealTime, Memo Review, Difficult Fun and Swampland. In 2020 I was named as one of the Judith Neilson / Copyright Agency emerging arts critics, covering visual arts in Melbourne for The Age and Sydney Morning Herald.

In 2018 I participated in SEVENTH gallery’s emerging writers program, have written numerous artist exhibition essays, and have been commissioned by City of Melbourne to write on their public art collection.

With over five years experience in community radio I now host and produce podcasts for Art Guide Australia, interviewing artists and curators across the country.

I have further exhibited my own creative works through Liquid Architecture, West Space, ABC Radio National and Brisbane Emerging Arts Festival.

I’m a regular music reviewer for The Australian, and in 2018 I established and edited underground long-form music platform Difficult Fun. In 2019 and 2020 I participated as a judge for the Australian Music Prize, and currently play in post-punk band No Sister.

From 2016-2019 I was the Gallery and Communications Assistant at Arts Project Australia, and in 2017-18 was the Media and Marketing Associate for BLINDSIDE. I’m currently an Editor and Podcast Producer at Art Guide Australia.
