Who am I?

Thank you for finding your way here. I am a multidisciplinary musician, performer and human rights advocate, who believes in the power of words and music to open pathways of empathy between people.

My Mission . . .

Music is a handy little thing. I believe that we evolved making music because it is the most direct route to empathy and connection. Like a neural shortcut. 

We cannot close our ears to someone else’s music. Our biology prevents us from doing so. When we listen, we are in essence feeling their emotions, on a raw, subconscious level.  

In doing so, our emotional commonalities are reinforced. We are drawn to the realisation that we are all bundles of nerves: fragile and vulnerable. And we know implicitly that we need to be careful with each other.

That is why I tell personal stories through music. That is why I collaborate with people with disabilities, LGBTQIA+, First Nations, and other diverse people, to play some small part in sharing their important stories. 

Because I believe that music can help us understand ourselves, and each other, a little better.

My work is diverse and across many fields: from comedy to concert music, but I like to think it is bound by vulnerable and honest storytelling.

I would love for you to listen – and if you're feeling brave, join me on this journey.

Be part of my journey.

My Current Work:

I've just presented my original cabaret show Scarred For Life in the Adelaide Fringe. It exceeded my wildest hopes. We had five star reviews, sold well, and even got a Fringe Award! 

Stay tuned for a CD, and an Australian national tour!

What I've just done:

Gondwana! 

Hello, Sydney-siders! I am very much looking forward to visiting your wonderful city during January for the annual Gondwana National Choral School. I have been fortunate enough to gain entry to this fantastic summer choral school featuring many of Australia's top choral composers, conductors and educators, including Paul Holley, Carl Crossin and Graeme Morton. Under the tutorage of composers James Ledger and Paul Stanhope, I will compose a new piece of choral music, which will be presented in concert on the 12th of January - more details to follow.

The final concert featuring all of the National Choral School will be at Verbrugghen Hall, Sydney Conservatorium of Music on Saturday 17th January at 3pm and 6pm. You can book tickets here.
