I'm a Researcher & Creative Producer with possibly one too many pursuits. In 2013 I was awarded an Urban Studies Foundation Fellowship to investigate the rise of digital cities and the open data movement. I also work as an artist and heritage consultant through Esem Projects, where I explore the creative possibilities of urban storytelling using installation, sound and digital projection technologies. I'm fascinated by stories of cities, both intimate and grand. I've lived past lives in public policy, digital strategy, and arts funding. Oh, and I was a bike courier once. I might go back to that one day.
