Your Background

Your Biography

I am currently working at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney as the Manager of Visual & Digitisation Services that includes: Photography, Audio-visuals, The Image Resource Centre, The Photo Library and Rights and Permissions. I have worked in imaging sections for other cultural organisations in Sydney including: Art Gallery NSW, State Library NSW and the National Maritime Musuem. I studied photography at the College of Fine Arts doing a Bachelor of Arts and a Master of Art.

I have been working on the Commons project on Flickr and showcasing some of the work done by the Museum producers on our website, whilst also licensing them under Creative Commons. I am committed to making our content accessible. I am passionate about the role digital content is playing in social media and community sites such as Flickr, Instagram, Facebook and YouTube.

I exhibit my own photography and am drawn to the experimental side of the medium. I have a lot of energy but must admit I require double-shot coffees in the morning.
