Audience Research & Strategy: Queensland Museum + Non-Executive Director: Brisbane Writers Festival
Entertainment | Brisbane Area, Australia, AU
I would like to preface this by saying; I have never had a particular job in mind to be the cornerstone of my career.
I am a Strategic Advisor and Researcher of people, culture, design and the mind. I have a passion for understanding the mechanisms of creativity and innovation in society and this is grounded in my love of the human mind, cognitive science and philosophy.
I am intensely interested in entertainment, culture, design and philosophy, principally because of their ability to traverse disciplinary boundaries. It is likely that ideas about the way we perceive and understand the world, through objects, events, journeys and each other will be central to my work in the future.
I like to work at the boundaries of disciplines and I like to work with people who have never previously worked together. I am
a serial collaborator, and I specialise in not specialising.
I have worked in both the design and delivery of tertiary education programs and I believe that the most effective education is that which is based in economically sustainable and collaborative work. Learning outcomes are often emergent; the easiest and cheapest way to find them is simply - to start something.
I wish to live in a world where sustainable, local business can flourish, and citizens enjoy a life which is not delineated by work / personal boundaries.
I don't really believe in 'position descriptions', however I do find that there are three roles that best represent me in my element:
A Catalyst: I actively support and integrate new work into the direction of changing cultural
A Communicator / Challenger: I enjoy sharing a vision and message with a broad team and stakeholders. I particularly enjoy competive environments such as pitches and presentations.
An Experimenter: I like to work with new teams and test new approaches.
I am always open to new opportunities - please get in touch.
