I was in high school in Texas when I first realised the power of the Australian story. I had started knocking about with school theatre projects in Sydney
and at some stage I had been chosen to take part in an international cultural exchange of sorts at a school in Lubbock, where for two months we performed

Texas. It was the first time I’d seen any part of the world apart from travels with my family.
