Studied science at Victoria University in NZ but left after a year to live in a bus with friends. Toured around New Zealand before upgrading to a house truck and spent a few years on communes and farms in the northern New Zealand. In the 80s I went back to Uni and finished a degree in History at Sydney University before completing a Postgrad in Museum Studies. Since then I have worked as Curator of Photography at the Macleay Museum. been Acting Manager at Hurstville Regional Museum, and Assistant Curator on the Total Asset Management Project researching at risk collections at the Powerhouse Museum. In 2011 I changed roles and became Online Producer managing the Collection Australia Network, as well as working on web projects in the Digital & Emerging Technologies Department and curator on Total Asset Management project at the Powerhouse Museum. Currently I am working for the Parramatta City Council as Research and Collection services Coordinator. This role was set up to manage the archival, Local Studies and Cultural Collections across the Council. In 2010 I completed my Master of Arts in History - "Refracted Vision: nineteenth-century photography in the South Pacific".
