Danny claims to be the most dedicated Discworld fan in Adelaide, having fallen in love with the books at the age of 12.
He joined Unseen Theatre Company in 2000, and after a few years in various roles, directed “The Truth” in 2003. He then took a decade-plus hiatus from theatre before returning to the stage with Unseen in 2016.
In the intervening years, he made sure to watch all the Unseen productions, and also and became heavily involved in Discworld fandom.
Danny has been a volunteer at all Australian Discworld Conventions since 2007, and a founding member and Chairperson of the City of Small Gods – Adelaide’s Terry Pratchett Fan Club.
All of these pursuits culminated in being Chairperson of Nullus Anxietas VI – The Discworld Grand Tour – The Australian Discworld Convention in 2017, which had over 200 attendees and featured Stephen Briggs as a special guest.
This is one of his proudest achievements. Acting’s fun too, of course.
