About Me

I’m a fat queer theatre-maker and producer based in Narrm (Melbourne) who tells stories about place, otherness, and utopia. The work I make is often queer, site-specific, & verbatim, and looks to make our world a bit better. You can see my portfolio here.

I am a graduate of Monash University with a Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Business. I studied at the (now defunct) Centre for Theatre and Performance, and was one of the students who led the campaign to save it in 2020.

Canon fodder: Monash cuts to music studies draw chorus of protest
More than 70 scholars from universities including Harvard, Oxford and Cambridge have urged Monash Uni to reverse a decision to scrap some music units under plans to shed 277 full-time jobs.

The work I’m most proud of having made so far is called Full Cream, a story about fat kinship and liberation that I made with Em Keagan and Georgie Wolfe. We’ve got big plans for future projects so that's where a lot of my time goes.

I also record a weekly-ish podcast called Broadly Relevant, a quick-fire overview of the week’s news ft a sufficient amount of shit-talking.

My day job is in social media management, and I have extensive experience marketing events and producing social media content for theatre.

Theatre Reviews

I send out a weekly whenever-I-get-around-to-it newsletter where I review and reflect on theatre in Narrm (Melbourne). You can have a read of past witings here.

I would love to see your work and write about it. Let's get in touch.
