I am so proud to be the Head Stage Manager for the 2019 Arafura Games Opening and Closing Celebrations.

I get to work with hundreds of artists, community members and creatives to deliver these sensational events to the community. These events will launch the Arafura Games and celebrate our multi-cultural community and the very talented humans we have in the NT.

As Stage Manager my role is to help coordinate the running of the events and make sure everyone is ready and fired up before performing. It’s a part of live show that I absolutely love. The backstage camaraderie and anticipation before going on stage is electric and I’m so pleased to have this role.

Also incredible proud to work with the team at Creative Accomplice to deliver this event. They are amazing creative geniuses who deliver above and beyond anyone’s expectations.
