City: Brisbane

I had a very arts-centric upbringing and in my early career I wrote, directed, produced and performed plays, skits, songs, stories, poetry, short films and stand up comedy. I spent about five years working for the Sit Down Comedy Club as Artistic Director for Theatresports which I have performed and taught all over Australia. I've performed my other works nationally and internationally and really enjoyed my time in the industry. Then I moved on to writing for the web, being a magazine editor, and then moved on to writing for marketing and advertising. These days I'm a freelance copywriter, producer and director with a focus on digital content creation.
