About Me:
I began my career as a journalist telling stories about creativity. These days I tell those stories through projects; currently, as director of Vivid Ideas, and in the past through Creative Sydney, the Qantas Spirit of Youth Awards (SOYA) and Creative Cities East Asia. I am interested in policy development and served as policy adviser to the NSW Minister for the Arts. I have edited magazines including SummerWinter, Empty and Yen and I am still passionate about independent media. I am interested in social change, creative city-building, sustainability, cross-industry collaboration, communication, tech, the future of education, design, fashion, photography, writing, art and all that other awesome stuff.
