I have worked in the arts and creative sector for the last 25 years working with and supporting artists and arts organisations in New Zealand, the UK and internationally.
I came to the Depot in 2021 returning to Aotearoa after my most recent post in the UK as Head of Participant Services at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. I was previously the General Manager at Festivals Edinburgh, the strategic body that supports the 12 Edinburgh Festivals and was Senior International Adviser at Creative New Zealand for five years before returning to Edinburgh to take up the Fringe role.
“My thinking and outlook in life and work has always been very international but rooted locally and I’ve been lucky enough to follow a path that has allowed me to explore and connect with ideas and colleagues from around the world for most of my professional life. I’m a strong believer in the power of collaboration and in continued exploration and learning in all that we do.”
