I am a Director, Writer and Producer of mainstream theatre that fulfills visions of social change, social justice, acceptance and celebration. From Broadway successes including a revival of FIDDLER ON THE ROOF (Tony-Nominated) and SMOKEY JOE’S CAFE (one of the 30 longest running musicals of all time) to contemporary Indigenous work at the Aboriginal Centre for Performing Arts in Brisbane. My mantra is “Artistry Connecting Audiences” bringing cultures, stories, hearts and minds outside the regular “white” preview by finding the universals within them that connect us all. I seek the affirmation of humanity in comedy, tragedy, music, dance in prominent venues around the country.
I focus on the creation of new work of scale with the highest professional standards. This includes CAFE REBETIKA! – a story of passion, displacement and resilience with the music of the Greek Blues. I create work authentically with artists with cultural and philosophical horizons beyond my own. I have strong relationships with venues, touring networks and funding bodies.
I am a graduate of Yale University’s theatre program and RMIT’s Multicultural Arts Professional Development program (Distinction).
