where: I’m from Sydney, Australia, but I recently moved back to New York.
why: I’ve never wanted to do anything else. Performing makes me happy. I like that my occupation has the power to affect, change and move people.
how: Trust in myself and an awesome mother and father.
anything you’d like to brag about? I won the 2006 helpmann award nomination for my role in ‘Dusty’ a musical about singer Dusty Springfield. It was my first job out of drama school. I’m also proud of travelling to Iraq and Afghanistan in 2007 to entertain Australian and Coalition troops.
what are you working now? An untitled one-woman show that will premiere at the Adelaide Cabaret Festival next year in Australia. Set before the outbreak of WW2, it’s the story of a Jewish chanteuse and her Berlin cabaret act.
