Drawing on almost two decades of varied experience, I bring a fresh perspective, a creative approach, insatiable curiosity and a genuine passion for heritage and culture.
Having worked with a range of world-class organisations, national museums and small, independent culture and heritage sites, and with a background in cultural strategy and funding, I can provide a bespoke service and set of skills for projects of all sizes.
My experience includes content development, design briefing, interpretation, research, writing, strategic planning, audience development and business planning.
Creating engaging, exciting, accessible and sustainable projects that inspire audiences, and meet the needs of a range of stakeholders with different requirements, from funders and sponsors to subject experts and approval boards.
I am based in Central London, with an extensive network of contacts across the UK and abroad. I can work independently or put together a tailored team to deliver you needs.
