About Maddy

Maddy is a sound designer and multidisciplinary technical theatre practitioner. Having started in independent theatre as a stage & production manager, at NIDA she has loved having the chance to explore a wide range of technical and artistic areas and enjoys being a jack of all trades. She has particularly fallen in love with sound design & composition for theatre, and has worked on various productions in this role within and outside of NIDA. She is especially looking forward to continuing her work in this area as well as in other roles, and is particularly interested in working on new Australian plays.
