She is a multimedia artist, creative writer and Associate Professor in practice-based research at RMIT University in Melbourne Australia where she collaborates with colleagues on important local, national and global initiatives, grounded in the Deep Ecology movement.

Her creative work draws on locative media and co-design practice to reimagine cultural trails as sonic walks with First Nations storytellers.
