I am currently a project leader at innovate change, a not-for-profit social enterprise that uses creative and participatory approaches to build social connectedness that enables youth development, positive ageing and whānau well-being.
My curiosity (and tendency to say yes) has led to my involvement in a very diverse range of creative endeavours, such as co-founding documentary initiative Loading Docs, co-directing Transmedia NZ, blogging for The Big Idea, creating transmedia content and strategy for the theatrical production Pure and Deep and working with the Arts Foundation’s crowdfunding platform, Boosted. Prior to joining innovate change I was a lecturer at Colab, the ‘collaboratory’ for Design and Creative Technologies at AUT.
I aim to have a positive social impact in my work and life. I like to share my knowledge with others, I live to learn and I’m happiest when I’m creating and exploring.
