8th National Brain Injury Conference

The 2022 Brain Injury Australia conference ran for three days at the end of June in Sydney. Finally on national stage, I was honoured to speak alongside other peers on the topic ‘What Works’ in recovery.

My 15 min presentation, ‘From the accident to By Accident™’, covered specific character traits assisting in my astounding 23 year recovery from severe brain injury and morphed into promotion for By Accident of course.

Please excuse the lighting. I will make a different, more accessible version soon however until then… enjoy

Your Story -Getting on the Record

I spoke in an online video seminar about how Victorians can get their own disability story heard, so we can work towards a safer and more inclusive society.

It was great to speak with representatives from Your Story Disability Legal Support, Relationships Australia Victoria and Leadership Plus.

Epworth Hospital Talk

When I was injured in 1999, the Epworth Hospital cared for me after I came out of my coma. It was here I said my first words and learnt to take my first steps in my new life.

At Brain Injury Awareness Week in September 2015, I spoke to a room of patients (both current and past), therapists, employees of the hospital and members of the public.

Here I am sharing my story.

Embryonic Zombie Butterfly

Explorations season at La Mama Theatre in Carlton is a chance for artists to showcase their work on stage. This iteration of Embryonic Zombie Butterfly had been developed over 2013-2014 with the director Xanthe Beesley.

My participation in the Pathways program at Arts Access Victoria with Fiona Cook enabled a return to stage with my own story after 15 years.
