I live here now

 Approaching Dubai

Approaching Dubai

On October 1st I landed in Dubai to start a 2 year journey as the Creative Lab Director at a new children's museum called OliOli. The museum itself, and the Creative Lab within it, are both the first of its kind in Dubai, and since we opened our doors a week ago, its clear that visitors and families have been waiting for a space like this for a long time.

This blog will be a place to document my life and work here in Dubai. Its focus will be the process of building and running the Creative Lab, and the other exhibits at OliOli, but will also probably have some random thoughts, observations, and travel stories. Once I get a day off (my first in a while!) I will start to publish the many draft posts I have building up. Im really excited to share more about the museum and the work I am doing!

Thanks for reading!
