Career Highlights

I've had over 30 years involvement with the Australian arts communities as a journalist, theatre producer and film maker which has instilled in me a passion for storytelling and community. I've worked in film, radio and online to produce stories of tenacity, resilience and inspired madness. Surely that makes everything else worthwhile?
