I am a Cultural Manager and Curator, based in Dublin, specialising in contemporary lens-based practices. I am in additin acting as General and Project Manager for PhotoIreland, co-running The Library Project (gallery, Photobook library, and Art bookshop in Dublin), producing events throughout the year like the annual PhotoIreland Festival and Critical Academy, while collaborating on ambitious projects like Creative Europe Photography Platforms—Parallel and Futures. As of recent, I am co-editor of OVER Journal: The Critical Journal of Photography and Visual Culture for the 21st Century (launched July 2020). I am a recipient of the Visual Arts Bursary (Curatorial Strand) from the Arts Council of Ireland 2020-2021.
I have vast experience in producing many exhibitions and events, including curatorial work and project management with EU photographic projects and platforms. I have participated in portfolio reviews and acted as visiting lecturer. I also work in an editorial capacity and translation for artists and other arts professionals, including work on The Routledge Guide to Photography and Visual Culture. In 2020, I was on the jury for the International Photography Grant and Le Mois de la Photo Grenoble (I was also invited to curate the Carte Blanche section, which had to be postponed due to the pandemic).
