I work as a curator, arts manager, university lecturer and author in Ireland, Northern Ireland and Germany. I organize and realize exhibitions, festivals and cultural events and hold a Master degree from the Universität Münster in Communication Science, Art History and Cultural Studies as well as a Master in International Arts Management from the Art Academies in Cologne and Düsseldorf.
As a curator I focus on site specific multimedia arts installations and the topic of borders and social change. I managed the interdivisional arts festival ‘new talents - biennale cologne’ from 2008 until 2017 and worked for a variety of other projects and institutions such as the exhibition programme at Quartier am Hafen in 2013, Kunst-Station Sankt Peter, Fuhrwerkswerkswaage Kunstraum, ecce – european centre for creative economy, Kunsthalle Recklinghausen and Kunsthaus NRW. In 2016 I moved to Ireland and initiated the ongoing interdisciplinary project series ‘the corridor’ in Belfast, Dundalk and Dublin. Since 2018, I'm a Co-Director at Catalyst Arts in Belfast.
As a lecturer I impart my knowledge and experience in exhibition organization, -production and -editorial to the students of the University of Applied Science in Cologne since 2013.
