I am exploring: technoscience mythologies; diaspora solidarity; feminist commoning; building IRL decentralised community networks; decoloniality; quotodian pleasures of cities. To forge alternatives to systemic imbalances; to plant intoxicating thought-weeds. Modes: writing and digital visuals.


I completed a Master of Creative Technologies (First Class Honours) at Colab, AUT and was selected to join Strelka’s The New Normal. I have exhibited work in online and offline spaces across New Zealand, UK, Germany, Spain and Croatia. My writing has been published by Kajet Journal, href zine, HAMSTER Magazine and Digital Cultures Institute NZ.

My paid work background is in design, education, writing, project management, and research. Get a buzz from connecting ideas and people to move toward a future of non-extractivist relations, where we take care of the commons, uplift each other, and collectively thrive. I help manage Studio Lutalica, a design studio for women + queers, and co-run Broad Bikez, providing maintenance, repair and education by and for women and LGBTQ+ people.
