I have worked in the arts and creative sector for the last 20 years working with and supporting artists and arts organisations in New Zealand, the UK and internationally.
I came to the Depot early 2021 from my most recent post as Head of Participant Services and Arts Industry and Marketplace Manager at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe which is the largest arts festival and marketplace in the world. I was also previously the General Manager and International Project Lead at Festivals Edinburgh, the strategic body that works with the 12 leading 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.
