I am a multi-award-winning performer, writer, and director. I make boundary-pushing theatre that explores the human condition through the personal as universal with raw honesty and playful physicality. I am an Australia Council for the Arts Future Leader 2022.
I hold a BA (French & German)/Dip. Creative Arts (Theatre Studies) from the University of Melbourne, completed on a scholarship program at Freie Universität, Berlin, where I lived for many years before moving to London to study an MA Performance (Acting) at Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts.
My career highlights include: Edith in Picnic at Hanging Rock (BBC), Brinda in Neighbours (Fremantle Media), Ensemble in Crazy for You (London Palladium), Inflight Voice for Qatar Airways, and my three critically acclaimed solo theatre shows, #DearDiary, Déjà Vu, and Happy-Go-Wrong, with the latter receiving five awards and being named a “highlight of the year” (The Age).
After having my world turned upside down by chronic illness, I have become a champion of thriving in impossibility. I am passionate about the intersection of art and health and am an ambassador for the Lyme Disease Association of Australia, on the board of No Strings Attached Theatre of Disability, and work as a Disability Inclusion Facilitator for Purple Orange. I have 10+ years' experience in facilitating Empathy in Medicine training within the medical sector and have written an academic paper on the subject. I also run my own creative mentoring business, Kick Up The Arts, where I help artists create and sustain their own practice.
