I am a poet, writer, editor and researcher based in Barcelona, with a focus on cultural diversity and creative expression for social change.
I take a cross-cultural and cross-disciplinary approach that explores creative ways to tell stories about the world around us. This stems from my personal experience working in a number of cultures (Australia, Spain, Thailand, Singapore), which has given me an appreciation for the importance of an open and multifaceted worldview, necessary when adapting to diverse cultural contexts. These exchanges are particularly important in a world where cultural misunderstanding, and the unequal access to resources, creates barriers. A recognition of diverse ways of working is needed now more than ever, in a context where fear of difference proliferates.
My poetry has been published in numerous journals and in 2014 I was a writer-in-residence at the Wheeler Centre in Melbourne. I co-wrote Freelancing in the Creative Industries (Oxford University Press, 2015) and I have authored a number of publications on art and sustainability. I have appeared at various writers’ festivals and my videopoems have been exhibited in Australia, Spain and Greece. I am a PhD candidate in the Faculty of Arts and Design at the University of Canberra, Australia, and am a co-editor of the academic journal Coolabah, of the Transnational and Australian Studies Centre in the University of Barcelona.
