My background is in contemporary art – making work, curating, writing about art and promoting artists and initiatives far and wide. I lead on Shape's audience development, which encompasses programming, development, relationship building, marketing and public relations. This might be through putting on events and exhibitions, managing our public communications, liaising with press and media, growing relationships with individuals and organisations we work with (or want to), and more.

In my free time I love to read, write, watch films, visit galleries, art events and museums, dance and perform – especially at festivals – and spend time with my partner and friends. I run a text/art publication called HOAX and am very into zines, art books and unusual art objects.
