THEATRE

In addition to my work in film and animation, I thoroughly enjoy directing theatre at Short & Sweet Sydney.

 

There is always something magical about dropping all the tech and gear and sitting down with actors to craft the work. I love the freedom, the playfulness, and the rush I get when the work is finally presented for the first time in front of an audience.

 

Please enjoy my plays to date.
