About the Director
I've had 15 plus years of professional experience in the entertainment world. It began in 2003, when I met QUEEN and launched my unique professional career in the original Australian production of We Will Rock You.
Behind the camera, I have worked as a Choreographer|Movement Director for Australia's biggest Production/Film Houses. I have performed for Australian artists and international artists such as Kelly Rowland, Ricky Martin, Lunch Money Lewis, Geri Halliwell, Hugh Jackman. Live TV guest performances include; XFactor; The Voice; SYTYCD; Australia's Got Talent; Australian Idol; The Australian Open; The Footy Show; AFL Grand Final; NRL Grand Final; 20/20 Cricket; Today; GMA; The Morning Show; Sunrise; Carols by Candlight Melbourne and Sydney; The Helpmmann Awards and many more.
In 2017, I retired from performing after I played role of 'Extraordinary Girl' in American Idiot. Previous professional credits include; 'Anita' in West Side Story; 'Christmas Eve' in Avenue Q; 'Carmen' in FAME; We Will Rock You; Miss Saigon; Hugh Jackman - The Boy From Oz; 'Carmen' in Sweet Charity, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Opera Australia’s Orpheus in the Underworld; and The Eighth Wonder.
My first love was storytelling through movement/dance, as this is where I first learnt to express myself as an artist. I’m fascinated with the human condition, the human unease… the constant dissatisfaction. I want to tell stories that bridge our disconnection and create a sense of belonging. I have a Postgraduate in Screen Directing from AFTRS (Sydney). In 2019, I will be releasing ‘eMasculate’ a short documentary and a short film I produced, wrote and Directed - ‘Fourteen’.
