About

Since 2011, I have toured solo works to festivals such as Adelaide Fringe Festival, Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Perth's Fringe World Festival, and Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Initially, these works have been alternative comedy, consisting of character comedy, multimedia, musical comedy, and stand up.  However, more recently, I've focused on theatre works, centring on personal storytelling and social issues.

In 2016, I branched out from my comedy roots to write, direct, perform and produce my first theatre piece, Makin' It Rain. This theatre debut was a solo autobiographical telling of my experiences as a stripper in Australian Gentlemen's Clubs.  You can find out more about Makin' It Rain, and my other past live shows here.

Between 2016 and 2018, I honed these theatre skills, writing, directing, and performing two more theatre shows, as well as branching out into teaching. When I ran workshops, in addition to performing, as an official guest artist at the University of Washington, USA in 2018. 

In 2020, I will release my debut work of prose, Daydreamings, an exploration of connections through thirty-two pieces of flash fiction. More information about Daydreamings can be found here.
