I'm the Director of Sense Connexion and an Honorary Research Associate, Department of Performance Studies, University of Sydney. Through personal and group training as well as consultancy in higher education institutions, I inspire savvy resilience in actors and other creative professionals. I have taught performance for stage and screen in many Australian Higher Education institutions. In 2009 I was awarded a Churchill Fellowship to investigate the holistic healthcare for actors in training and in the workplace in the UK. I have helped professional actors debrief from traumatising roles using my specially-designed Resilient Vulnerability© program. I am currently a co-researcher with the national Actors' Wellbeing Survey (University of Sydney and Equity Foundation). My most recent publication in Performing Ethos: International Journal of Ethics in Theatre & Performance is entitled “Traumas Of Acting Physical And Psychological Violence: How Fact And Fiction Shape Bodies For Better Or Worse”.
