I care about the way we design our relationships to each other and to nature - as expressed in our cities, buildings and objects. 

I am a currently a curator at the Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein, Germany, focusing mostly on contemporary design and architecture. At present, I am working on an exhibiiton and research project on nature and social justice (Opening early 2023). Until September 2021, I worked on a survey exhibition investigating the contribution of women to design over the past century. I  have taught at the School of Architecture and Urban Design at RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia, where I previously graduated with degrees in Interior Design and Journalism. I have worked as a writer, researcher and publisher on the subjects and architecture and design since 2002, conceptualising and producing a number of books and magazines as one-offs or on an ongoing basis. Ongoing research interests pertain to curatorial practice in design and architecture, as well as transdisciplinary approaches to spatial design, living environments and housing. In 2020/2021, I was a Guest Professor at the University of the Arts and Design in Karlsruhe, Germany.
