writer | director | producer | performer
I am an independent artist and producer who works across theatre, comedy, musical theatre, cabaret and storytelling, in mainstage and independent venues and festivals.
The work I make is grounded in community, joy and humour, in sharing stories, in music, and in challenging myself and my audience to think about difficult things in new ways.
Over the past decade I’ve written, directed, produced and performed in a of shows. I’ve toured extensively in Australia, New Zealand and the UK.
I’ve curated events and cabaret nights and festivals, hosted panels and parties, edited a magazine, published a book, made a podcast or two, completed a playwriting fellowship, collaborated with a bunch of brilliant creatives, written opinion pieces and satire and fiction, of course, an important piece of journalism about the fact that I hate pavlova.
Most of my work is framed by a queer or feminist lens, and I am passionate about creating an arts industry that is progressive and fair, that celebrates difference. I am determined and opinionated but am always open to being told I am wrong. My work has often been described as ‘wholesome’ which I think is cool young people’s way of saying you’re in your late 30s and not very edgy but we think you’re quite charming’.
I am, unsurprisingly, available for hire, as an event producer, writer, curator, performer, director, collaborator and MC.
