Jess is a museum and culture addict with a passion for all things digital. Growing up, she would often be found painting plinths or cleaning showcases to help her dad install a community museum exhibition. After completing a Bachelor of Arts in Communications and Cultural Studies, she worked as a copywriter and digital engagement specialist both inhouse and in a freelance capacity for a wide variety of clients. She spent almost ten years living in Paris and Manchester, gallivanting across the world visiting as many museums and art galleries as she could before museum fatigue set in.
In 2016, she finally summoned up enough brain power to complete a Masters in Art Gallery and Museum Studies at the University of Manchester and has returned to Perth with a determination to help strengthen the culture and arts sectors. And she still occasionally helps paint plinths.
