Tina, a celebrated writer aged 41, proudly identifies as a member of the LGBTQIA+ community and as someone living with down syndrome. In January 2024, Tina, alongside Director Jacqueline Pelczar and Producer Sophia Armstrong, unveiled their latest project, the web series "OUT OF HERE," which Tina not only wrote but also showcased her acting skills in.

Her journey in the spotlight began to gain momentum back in 2021 when she triumphed with her debut short film, "SPARKLES," clinching the prestigious Outstanding Achievement in Writing award at the 2021 Screen Culture Awards. Supported by Screenwest's Elevate70 program, "SPARKLES" captivated audiences across various film festivals, including Flickerfest in Sydney, Revelation Film Festival, and Cannes Short Film Festival in 2021, and later at Slamdance Film Festival in Utah, Micheaux Film Festival, El Paso Film Festival, and Pride on the Reef in Gladstone, Queensland in 2022. The film's journey continued with accolades at My Queer Career and Asia-Pacific Queer Film, where Tina was recognised as an Emerging Performer and garnered the Audience Award in 2023.

Tina's stage presence has been equally compelling, highlighted by her performances with the Black Swan State Theatre Company in "YOU KNOW WE BELONG TOGETHER" in Sydney, London, and at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2022. Her dedication to the craft was fostered early on through workshops, including the Perth Festival Connect workshop with award-winning performer Claire Cunningham in 2016. Since then, Tina has graced the stage with Poles Apart Community Theatre and the Black Swan State Theatre Company, further cementing her place in the performing arts scene.

Beyond her artistic endeavours, Tina remains a passionate advocate for diversity in the arts, championing inclusivity and demonstrating that everyone, regardless of ability, has a valuable place to showcase their talents.
