ABOUT ME

I'm a performer and writer based in Brisbane, Australia. With performance experience across street theatre, spectacle, clowning, cabaret, drama and dance, I have a broad range of skills to draw on while presenting works.

My self-produced theatre works are often explicitly queer, with a focus on kitsch, the reclamation of trash, and the experiences of the outcast.

As I writer I focus on these issues through essays and fiction. I'm a regular contributor for Brisbane business magazine The Tech Street Journal, and sometimes blog about video games at WI'mP.

I'm available for freelance writing, journalism, performance and producing jobs.
