I work as a cross-disciplinary artist. I specialise in making fun, accessible work that exists at the intersection of performance, literature and live art. I enjoy making work for young people and work that encourages community engagement in the arts. See the Projects Page for more information about projects I have worked on.
Previous clients include: City of Melbourne, 100 Story Building, State Library of Victoria, Agency of Coney, Melbourne International Animation Festival, MUDfest, SYN and the Emerging Writers' Festival.
THE UNCLASSIFIABLES for the State Library of Victoria
In 2011, I created, wrote, designed and operated an interactive education program for the State Library of Victoria based on Shaun Tan's The Lost Thing.
A collaboration with UK's Agency of Coney, this innovative term-long program was designed to engage grade 5 and 6 students in a mysterious adventure that unfolded in their own classroom in the form of packages, emails, videos, live chats, phone calls and visits from a range of fictional characters. Focusing on resilience, transition, empathy and the school curriculum, this project enabled students to became the heroes of their own narrative while learning valuable skills. I am passionate about promoting innovative and responsive approaches to storytelling and education.
No-One Is Not A Joke for Kings ARI
A Kings ARI Flash Night commission, this exhibition/performance/joke playfully explored and celebrated The Ridiculous.

I bought 500 whoopee cushions for this exhibition and I don't regret it.
Mural for SYN FM
In 2009 I was commissioned to paint a mural in the SYN FM Studios. It took ages. Here's a stop-motion video of me doing it:
