An Australian performer, director, writer and producer. Father to 2 girls who enjoys creating good accessible theatre.

What would you do differently to what you do now?   
Nothing – everything is just perfick, even when it’s not easy.

Who inspires you and why?
I get inspired when I see good art – be it on stage or in a gallery or in a public place. Art reminds me of what it is to be human. I believe that is its purpose.

What would you do to make a difference in the world?
Hopefully I am doing my small part by creating theatre that builds community. I have a pretty exciting vision.

Favourite holiday destination and why? 
No place in particular, just somewhere to relax and re-connect with nature – mountains, valleys, the ocean.

When friends come to town, what attraction would you take then to, and why?
In Melbourne I would take them along Chapel Street (fashion), Acland Street (cake and gelati), Smith Street (restaurants and cool shops), the Arts precinct (see a show), the cafes in Little Collins (brekky on a Sunday morning), and Phillip Island (beaches and the race track if they had a motor bike they would loan me).

What are you currently reading?
Influence by Robert D Cialdini and a couple of others.

What are you currently listening to?
My daughter doing her vocal practice – and an array of Jazz artist.

Happiness is?
Serving others in some way.

What does the future hold for you?
Absolutely no idea, but the best is yet to come.

Glynn is currently producing and directing Song Contest – the Almost Eurovision Experience at The Alex Theatre for a limited season from 7 April 2016. For more information, visit: www.songcontest-musical.com for details.
