What I enjoy most about working in project management is the opportunity to showcase the strengths of an organisation, delivering synergies in brand alignment, digital content delivery, consumer promotions and offsite activations. I take a great deal of pride in my ability to deliver meaningful outcomes that engage a targeted audience.
Through my previous employment at the National Gallery of Victoria, I have collaborated with a breadth of commercial partners for the NGV including but not limited to David Jones, Qantas Airways, Telstra, Tennis Australia, RMIT University, L’Oreal Australia, Dulux, Mercedes-Benz, Lavazza, Asahi Premium Beer and Yering Station.
Projects that I have been particularly proud of leading have included a branding activation between the NGV and Tennis Australia during the 2018 Australian Open, a food range collaboration with David Jones and programming collaborations with RMIT University that provide students with industry knowledge and experience.

In a previous role at the Melbourne Recital Centre, I managed commercial partners ranging from Bank of Melbourne, The Langham Melbourne, Art Series Hotels, Montblanc Australia and the City of Melbourne to name a few. My leading accomplishment was contributing to the successful campaign with Audi Australia that won the Australian Business Arts Foundation Partnering Award for Victoria in 2012. Another milestone was achieved through setting up a points accrual and redemption scheme with the Recital Centre’s long-standing international airline partner, Etihad Airways.
My range of skills and professional experience have been described as unique, having experienced ‘client side’ through my previous experience as a project manager while possessing design knowledge and aesthetic influence that befits a commercial setting.
