Before joining the Arts Programme of the British Council as Project Assistant, I worked as Curatorial Assistant at PUMA.Creative. While at PUMA, I was involved on a variety of innovative live and virtual platforms connecting artists and creative across Africa, Europe and South America. I am particularly proud of being a part of films4peace (www.films4peace.com), PUMA’s annual short film commission that brought together some of the world’s best video artists and cultural institutions.
My passion is for fostering cross-cultural exchange and collaboration in multiple areas of the arts, including dance, video, photography, painting, drawing, writing and music.
From 2007-2008, I was Curatorial Assistant at the H&R Block Artspace (Kansas City, United States), a hub for contemporary art practice and discourse in Kansas City. In 2008 I curated an exhibition entitled "Political Persuasion: Street Posters for Barack Obama."
I studied Visual Art and Art History at the Kansas City Art Institute (Kansas City, United States) and Art History at McGill University (Montreal, Canada). I’ve completed research and writing on the visual arts for the Rubell Family Collection (Miami, FL, United States), University of New England Press (Lebanon, NH, USA) and Thames & Hudson (London, UK).
