I am a proud non-binary transperson. My pronouns are they/them.
I am a freelance audio engineer working across live venues in Naarm (Melbourne). I mix and master a diverse range of audio material for local and international release. I have designed sound and score for advertising, web content, theatre and dance productions and more, and have experience editing and mastering podcast series.
I perform live electronic music as part of industrial duo Activities of Daily Living and under the solo moniker Horse Pills. I have played in various ensembles and under many solo guises throughout the past 15+ years. I DJ occasionally across Melbourne as Hamburger Lady. Mixtapes are available on Mixcloud.
I am a co-founder of fledgeling record label Tender Collection, devoted to queer/feminist electronic, punk and outsider music. I previously ran Totem Tapes, releasing the likes of Superstar, Milk Teddy, Footy, Sissysocks and others.
As an independent artist (BA (Fine Art) 2012, RMIT), I have exhibited audio, video, performance and installation work nationally and internationally in solo and group settings. In recent years I have spent time away from much of my artistic practice but I am currently producing a suite of works for public presentation in 2021.

I acknowledge that I live, work and create on the stolen lands of the Wurrundjeri, Boon Wurrung and Woiwurrung peoples of the Kulin Nation. I pay my respects to their elders past, present and emerging. Sovereignty has never been ceded.
I urge all non-indigenous people to pay the rent by donating to a First Peoples organisation. I regularly support Black Rainbow, a national advocacy body for LGBTIQ+ First Peoples.
