Michelle trained with Actors College of Theatre & Television (ACTT) and Siren Theatre Company in Sydney, Australia before founding Pursuit Productions Company and The Actors Collective – a cooperative for actors, playwrights, directors and producers intent on developing new writing and content.

Before leaving Australia, Michelle produced Closer by Patrick Marber, Corporate Vibes by David Williamson, and co-produced award winning Bondi Dreaming by Sam Atwell.

Michelle, after twenty years building a global career in corporate IT, is now turning her commercial and business acumen to producing new writing for the UK theatre market.  In parallel to producing Feathers, Michelle will bring Bondi Dreaming and the original creative team from Australia for runs at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Brighton Festival, Dublin Fringe Festival and a run in London later in 2017.

Theatre credits for Michelle include Closer by Patrick Marber, Who’s Afraid of the Working Class and When the rain stops falling by Andrew Bovell, Face to Face and Corporate Vibes by David Williamson and A Small Family Business by Alan Ayckbourn.  Michelle also hosted The Theatre Show for Mindfor Studios, and performed in various roles for Deadly Women for the Discovery Channel and a number of Australian TV commercials.
