I’m an arts administrator and researcher living in Toronto.
My background is in collections management, photo history, and cultural preservation. I’ve worked in arts administration and collections management for the Design Exchange (Toronto), The Gilder (Toronto), Canadian Centre for Architecture (Montreal), Department of Photography at the Harry Ransom Center (Austin, TX), and the George Eastman Museum (Rochester, NY).
I was the recipient of the SSHRC Joseph Armand Bombardier Canada Graduate Scholarship for my Master’s thesis on the intersection of photography and environmentalism during the Cold War. I was also the 2014 recipient of the Power Corporation of Canada Grant for Curatorial Opportunities at the Canadian Centre for Architecture where I was involved in organizing the Andrew W. Mellon Research Program on architecture and photography as well as the exhibition The Other Architect. I have been a former contributor to Graphics Atlas, an online resource created by the Image Permanence Institute at the Rochester Institute of Technology.
I studied English Literature at Queen's University in Canada and Photographic Preservation & Collections Management at Ryerson University in conjunction with the George Eastman Museum. My research interests are broad and include contemporary performance practice, dance pedagogy, museum education, and photography.
