Crossing digital media, live performance, immersive theatre and copywriting, I have worked in the small-medium arts sector for over twenty years. As a freelance producer, expanding the appeal of creative practice is at the core of all my work.
Whatever the scale, size or budget – I’m always ready to jump on board and pitch in for a project; as a professional marketer, performer or volunteer back-stage assistant – it’s in my breath, it’s in my blood. I make time for the arts.
Just let me know what you’re looking to create and see if I can help make it happen.
As Content Director at this boutique digital media specialist my responsibilities included project planning, copywriting, client liaison and final proofing for marketing assets. Working with small teams I would consult with clients on strategies for enhancing their digital and social media presence in way best suited to their overall marketing plan. Some of the highlight projects include developing the new website for Autism Spectrum Australia, print media advertising for Toyota Fleet, and micro-sites for Sony Music Australia.
Working with the admin and marketing teams I have performed a range of duties for the venue including front-of-house and production assistance on various events between 2009 and 2011.
As a volunteer and production intern I helped with exhibits, collecting audience data and responding to visitor enquiries. I also enjoyed the privilege of working backstage and as an ad-hoc marketing assistant on major events such as Day For Night and performance projects for the Sydney Biennale.
In 2012 I took a commission from the international performance collective Fitz & Holderness to produce and perform an immersive solo endurance work The Speaker, over two days for the festival.
CRACK THEATRE FESTIVAL
A veteran of the National Theatre Event, I have worked with Crack as a hands-on volunteer, also providing marketing content and performing the solo work Achilles At Home. In 2015 I am presenting a skills workshop Writing Without Words based around Image Theatre and the work of Augusto Boal.
I worked on this landmark performance event at three consecutive festivals as part of the production crew, also providing assistance with crowd-control and contributing to the social media marketing push.
SYDNEY FRINGE FESTIVAL
In 2013 I produced and directed the “Festival Pick” production of Decadence, subsequently performing a sold-out run at 505 and touring to the Adelaide Fringe Festival where it received the award for “Best Theatre Week 3” in 2014.
For the inaugural Vivid Sydney in 2009 I ran a grassroots social media campaign promoting the Back My Project event; and the following year assisted with production of the improvisational live-art multimedia performance of Iron Chef.
