I've had experience performing at some of Perth's best venues as a lead cabaret performer and as an on-stage actor in a variety of roles (comedy, animal, musical, arty, etc.). Have also been paid as an interactive character actor for companies to play roles that involve members of the public. As a solo singer and band leader I have performed on stage, TV, and radio since childhood. I have had paid and volunteer speaking and non-speaking acting roles in promotional and training videos for corporate and educational companies, including sometimes providing voice narration and behind-the-scenes film and editing work (particularly for the scientific and education industry) as well as in local short films and music videos. I have been a part of lifestyle promotional films and I've honed my craft as both an on-screen and behind-the-screen actor and voice-over actor.

TV & Reality

I've performed live on X Factor, Access 31, Aurora TV, and Channel 7's Telethon. I'm also comfortable with radio, TV, online, & print media and have interviewed and been interviewed numerous times. I've honed the skills of interviewing people & being charismatic enough so that people open up to me and feel comfortable to tell their best stories. I love being on camera but have no problem remaining behind the camera to make interviewees shine if needed.
