Profile

More

I studied both civil engineering and art history at university. I have a passion for the interdisciplinary areas between art and science. I have studied other multi-disciplinary areas including philosophy, screenwriting, film directing, illustration, fine art and film criticism. In my spare time, I write poetry and plays. I paint, generally with acrylics, for newspaper publications and for other artistic projects. I have a research interest in environmental design and sustainability, and the artistic opportunities that can be found by being more engaged with the environment, both in terms of space and ethics. I explored this in my engineering thesis in resource management for the theatre industry, looking at how sets can be more environmental and artistically ambitious. I find art is everywhere, creative, adaptable, and spirited. I believe it is worth questioning the assumptions of art and culture with the intention of improving it and moving forward.
