School of Arts and Social Sciences Dr Introduction

I am a writer, oral storyteller and academic with a background in Visual Arts and Theatre. I am passionate about creativity, how it can change the way we thing about our lives and how this can build compassionate and resilient communities.

I work with the Elders and First People of this continent in yarning circles to bring about a deeper respect for the sovereignty of Indigenous knowledge and a greater cross-cultural understanding between our peoples. Story and sharing stories is at the centre of these circles. I am working towards the publication of my first novel.
