“My trajectory to project management was
an evolution. When I grew up, there was no
question: I was going to be an artist. As soon as I
graduated from high school, I went to art school.
When I left, I thought, ‘Okay, what am I going to
do now?’—because you don’t make money making art. I ended up getting a job at the National
Film and Sound Archive.
Then I was offered a project to manage at
the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney. I’d managed small projects, but this was an opportunity to manage a really big project. I was
responsible for assessing and relocating their
works on paper and their textiles collection.
I collaborated with fabricators to design the
storage units and then relocated well over
50,000 fragile objects into new stores.
