Megan’s creative spirit was shaped by the music, comedy, literature and performance that is integral to her family’s life. Falling in love with Drama at secondary school, Megan then arrived at Deakin University in 2004 and immediately sought like-minded colleagues to collaborate with.
Megan was part of 4Play Ensemble, a group who performed the self-devised piece Can I Live Tomorrow for a short season at Deakin University and Australian Centre of Performing Arts. Megan was also a founding member of a troupe engaged in touring informative theatre piece about tertiary transition to VCE students across Melbourne.
Graduating from Deakin in 2008 with a Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Teaching (Secondary), Megan gained employment at a classroom Drama teacher in both primary and secondary settings. Finding that teaching was not her niche, Megan moved away from the classroom into the world of Arts Administration. She has worked for various organisations including Helen Pandos Management, National Institute of Circus Arts and Bendigo South East College while completing her Graduate Certificate in Arts Management.
Megan’s performance coloured emotionally a speech that was part poetry, part soap-box… a sense of internal feelings exposed and expanded. Very confident and natural. Stephen Mitchell, Kyneton one Act Play Festival Adjudicator
