About

With interests in writing, literature, music and contemporary art, I’ve published profiles, essays, features, interviews and reviews through The Age, The Saturday Paper, Sydney Review of Books, Meanjin (Online), The Australian, Overland, The Lifted Brow, un Magazine, Art Guide Australia, RealTime, Memo Review, Disclaimer, 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. I currently write a weekly column for The Age – Spectrum, selecting an exhibition pick each week.

Having over five years experience in community radio, I now host and produce regular arts podcasts for Art Guide Australia. The most recent series, The Long Run, was an interview podcast talking with artists who’ve held 60-year practices, including Gareth Sansom, John Wolseley and Vivienne Binns – to name just a few.

I have further exhibited my own creative works through Liquid Architecture, West Space, ABC Radio National and Brisbane Emerging Arts Festival. In 2019 and 2020 I participated as a judge for the Australian Music Prize, and play in post-punk band No Sister.

From 2016-2019 I was the Gallery and Communications Associate 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.
