WHAT DO YOU DO?

I am the Director of Partnerships for the creative start up Splacer. Ultimately I find really incredible people to collaborate with to execute experiences in unique spaces around the city.

Alongside I make art and curate shows including an upcoming performance with Blonde Redhead in November.

 

WHAT STEPS DID YOU TAKE TO GET WHERE YOU ARE NOW?

Staying focused and committed to my vision, taking coffees with everyone who inspires me, and putting myself out there.
