Born in Bromley UK, I am an Ottawa-based media artist also working with and exhibiting photography and visual art. My single-channel and installation videos have been exhibited and broadcast in Canada and internationally.
As an active member of the Ottawa/Gatineau media arts community, I have served on the Boards of Saw Video and Daïmõn (Gatineau) and was the Coordinator of the Available Light Screening Collective for more than fifteen years. From 2007-16 I was the video technician at the Centre de production Daïmõn (Gatineau), where I was fortunate to have worked with a diverse group of artists on various aspects of their video projects. In addition to producing promotional videos for the Centre, I initiated and carried out a series of artist profiles/interviews in both French and English and was responsible for all aspects of the productions – concept, interviewing, lighting, shooting, sound, editing, transcription, translation, and subtitling. In my freelance capacity with my company CINETRONIC I have worked with a number of non-profit groups and production companies, including: second-camera/sound on the documentary The Eeyouch of Eeyou Istchee shot in a number of northern Quebec Cree communities; mentoring an immigrant videomaker on the Portrait Gallery of Canada’s project Family Portraits: Immigration and Identity; editing for the Nobel Women’s Initiative; and producing a music video.
My work in video is informed by my longtime interest in experimental film and video.
