“My mum wanted me to be a doctor. I became an actor.”

My mum is now my biggest fan, and she wants to be an actor too. I am a writer, producer, director, theatre maker, guest speaker, drama facilitator, MC and performer. Combining my loves, I work with young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds providing innovative drama programs in Melbourne. In my spare time I play basketball and volleyball,  barracks for Hawthorn Football Club and Toronto Raptors and travels. Check out www.youtube.com/beingdd  for some entertainment.


This year is the commemoration of the Vietnam War ending, and also the celebration of Australian settlement. It is time for me to know my mum’s story. Join in, and #tellmeyourstory.
