I started making shows for her mum in her bedroom when she was 6, and won the local Rotary Public Speaking competition when she was 13.  I ran off to the big smoke from her small town to train as an acrtess, but found the allure of telling my own stories in a multitude of differnet ways too alluring.  So I headed to Denmark to learn about installatio theatre techniques. I came back two years later ready to make and create.  I love having D&M’s (deep and meaningfuls) about life with strangers.  These conversations usually end up as rich content for my theatre shows. I find the seemingly banal and everyday endlessly fascinating. The caos of life is a beautiufl thing that deserves attention to be drawn to it through the ritual of theatre.  My own work is often direct address, and montages stories, gestures & physical narratives that are collected from interviews, conversations, confessions and observations with imaginings of everything in between. 

I am a proud founding member of the Australian Bureau of Worthiness, a residency model that creates theatre from interviews conducted with people on the street, asking ‘What makes your day worth it?’  We are three - myself, Tessa Leong (Director) and Jimmy Dodd.  We will have met 7 places by the end of 2014 have taken a break since the birth of my triplets in late 2014.

I have been involved in several processes and productions that have a community focused agenda, and has been a workshop leader for emerging arts companies such as Riverland Youth Theatre, Urban Myth Theatre, PYT (Sydney) & Courthouse Arts.  I have also taught acting at a tertiary level at The Animation Workshop in Viborg, Denmark and Flinders University.  I love to teach, and believe that if I want to be a great teacher I better make some good art.
