Academia

I am an early career researcher and academic whose focus included arts, humanities, craft, history and craftivism. I have lectured in education, pedagogy, culture, game design, craftivism, Guerrilla Kindness and more.

I hold a Bachelor of Arts with Honours in photography, a Graduate Diploma in Primary Teaching from La Trobe University and a Masters in Art in Public Space at RMIT, Melbourne.  I am currently in the pre-research phase of a PhD on educational YouTube videos.
