Bec is an Australian based performer, producer, director, choreographer and engagement specialist.

What would you do differently to what you do now?
In addition to what I do now, I’d add some skills to the mix; canine hydrotherapy, perfume maker, archery, UN translator, infant masseuse…

Who inspires you and why?
My friends inspire me. Selflessness and tenacity inspires me. And Jane Goodall.

What would you do to make a difference in the world?
Exactly what I’m doing professionally now – creating live performance experience for humans to be at their best.

Favourite holiday destination and why?  
Home. No internet. Simpler decisions.

When friends come to town, what attraction would you take them to, and why?
All the obvious galleries, all theatre spaces from the Arts Centre to The Butterfly Club, a day at the Australian Open, Healesville Sanctuary and a cocktail on a roof somewhere?

What are you currently reading?
Dark Emu by Bruce Pascoe, and any map I come across. I love reading maps.

What are you currently listening to?
Can’t get enough of Lizzo.

Happiness is?
Seeing the diamonds in people eyes.

What does the future hold for you?
Under construction… hopefully a lot more live performing and a rescue Staffordshire Bull Terrier.
