I work with art, place and culture in urban development. I conceive and design projects that link art and infrastructure - place and culture.

Seeking a better public realm, I work with urban planners and designers, architects and landscape architects, artists and curators.

I investigate the best of cultural infrastructure worldwide  and bring my research findings to government and development clients in Australia.

When I’m successful, people’s experience of their environment increases their well being, facilitates social contact , supports economy and builds cultural capital.

I blog and speak about urban development’s impact on culture.
