I have been trained in voice work by teachers at QUT including Dianne Eden and Jane Mott. From this the quality of my singing and acting voice have increased greatly. I love to perform and sing musical numbers as well as write my own music from poetry. I can play the Ukulele, flute, guitar, piano and didgeridoo.

My Music:

TV & Reality

TVC's for a language school, Brisbane Markets, Crown Casino, PWC, Electronics (Samsung/Apple) and food (Herbert Adams Pies).

Film & Stage Crew

On a number of productions at school I assisted with handling back-stage responsibilities: controlling the curtains, light operations and sound, managing costume and make-up for the performers and assisting audience members. I also was of great help to the director and worked as an assistant director for a number of productions between the years 2008-2010.
