Maxi wears a myriad of hats: performer extraordinaire, pole dancing compare, anti-violence safety ambassador and rugby union mascot, to name but a few. Largely, however, Maxi is known as the good girl of drag. Enormously respected by the gay and lesbian community at large for her generous spirit and sense of community, Maxi isn’t afraid to run a ladder in her stocking or chip an acrylic nail to help out when her community calls on her boundless talents to raise cold hard cash for charity.

Maxi has made her home as a regular hostess for Bobbi’s Pole Studio. Hostessing the last 15 years of Miss Pole Dance Australia and 7 years of Mr Pole dance, she even has a pole moved named after her..”The Maxi”
Maxi’s most recent challenge is to create “Maxi Shield’s Meals on Heels”. Bring two of her favourite things (Drag and Food) to Oxford St and venues around Sydney.
