And make people laugh. Who doesn’t like making people laugh?

In 2008, I was part of ATYP’s Fresh Ink, with Tommy Murphy and Debra Oswald. I studied Acting at the VCA, ‘09- ‘11. Recently, a short film I starred in, Gorilla, won the 2013 International Iris Prize, and a site-specific immersive theatre-thriller I wrote was funded by the Australia Council.
