(more) ABOUT ME

Born and raised in Kingston, Jamaica, I've also had the fortunate experience of living in Toronto and Montreal, Canada and most recently, Florence, Italy.
During my Bachelor of Arts education in Sociology and Linguistics at McGill University, I took a strong interest in the areas of race, gender, ethnicity, and development and conducted five Sociolinguistic research projects. My research investigates questions of identity and code-switching by tracing lexical and phonological changes in language over time. After completing my studies, I contributed directly to the arts landscape at C.B. Facey Foundation, working closely with nonprofit organisations dedicated to arts and educational initiatives.
One of my most significant achievements to date has been the founding of my business, Joined Feeling, a made-to-order apparel brand that I operated for two years in Kingston, Jamaica.

At the end of 2023, I completed my Master's in Curatorial Practice at the Istituto Europeo di Design where I developed my skills in contemporary art curation and exhibition design. For the dissertation, an exhibition titled The Tilt of Time, I collaborated with seven contemporary artists and within our curatorial collective of ten women, developing the public programme and catalogue. 

I recently hosted my first independent curatorial project in Jamaica, titled Heather Sutherland Wade: Hues of Jamaica, an exploration into the artist’s journey over the past twenty years.

I am committed to creating research-based projects, working directly with artists and developing meaningful connections.
