Yuma, Kia ora, God dag and G’day 🙂
I’m an interdisciplinary artist, scholar and founder of Treecreate

My PhD from the Australian National University explored social activism and the relationships between online and offline communities. I am now studying a research Masters of Applied Science at the University of Canberra, focusing on energy vulnerability and behaviour change.

As an academic, I have lectured at universities in Australia, New Zealand and Norway and hold adjunct research positions at the:

  •  eXtended Reality Lab, Charles Sturt University
  • TransArts Institute for Creative Research
  • Institute of Applied Ecology | Centre for Creative and Cultural Research at University of Canberra
  • More than Human Lab at Victoria University, Wellington, NZ.

As a policy and program leader I have over 15 years experience with government and community based environmental programs aimed at citizen engagement and behaviour change. Many of these roles have had a significant focus on online engagement. Some channels include:

  • Screensound.gov.au (web manager)
  • Environment.gov.au (web manager)
  • LivingGreener.gov.au (strategy and insights)
  • YourEnergySavings.gov.au (project rebranding lead)
  • Energy.gov.au (project management lead on consolidation)
  • ACT Education – behavioural insights advisor, digital transformation
  • ServicesAustralia.gov.au (user researcher)

I am passionate about joined up thinking through connecting art, science and culture to empower people to value and protect the environment through creativity and practical action. Collaboration is central to my practice and I work across a broad range of networks, including:

I also am a member of a number of arts and science organisations:
