I moved to Melbourne from NZ twelve years ago to avoid turning 30- but as the fates would have it- I still turned 30. My passion is for comedy and in finding humour in the midst of tragic pain and personal truths . I also have a real interest the use of humour for healing emotional wounds and strenghtening our survival against the arrows of misfortune.

The attached photo is from my very first gig as a stand-up comic. I was very much into props back then…….when I was four.

I hope you enjoy my collection of poems and short stories. I am a junkie for praise and an addict for feedback.

Alien Abduction- extended version

I have only four minutes before i get taken away , I don’t belong here, I belong with him…. he corrupted me in my youth with offers of jelly babies and a free ride into no where in particular. / My mother said, don’t talk to strangers but I couldn’t resist, couldn’t halt my growing obsession, he occupied my mind, with his wirey frame and sharpened wits , his sneer t…
