About me

Writer for screen, theatre and freelance (all kinds really!). Teach drama and performance in a local performing arts company for young people. Love photography and working with other creatives to produce excellent work. I am adding producing film and theatre to my list. My recent background has been spent in event/venue management, working on some of the biggest gigs in NSW including Big Day Out, Stereosonic, Sydney Royal Easter Show, Sydney Telstra V8 Supercars as well as large-scale corporate functions, dinners and product launches. I also worked as a health professional in Orthoptics for 15 years. I am currently working on several projects including a short film (write and produce), two features, a radio series and a novel. My day job is a Presentation Coordinator on Go/Gem at Channel 9 Network, based in Sydney.
