Carli Stasinopoulos is a magician's assistant, actress, writer, director, and figure skater from Adelaide, South Australia.

Storytelling has been her passion since a young child and she takes pride in creating original works. Carli has always been a performer, and the stage feels as much as her home as what an ice rink does.

In 2020 Carli graduated from the University of South Australia with an Honours degree majoring in Creative Writing and Performing Arts. She was also fortunate enough in 2017 to complete short-term overseas study at Cambridge University in England. Carli has also completed a masterclass in Directing with the State Theatre Company of South Australia.
