Do I know what art is? Throughout my training I found the more I tried to uncover the answer to that question the more elusive it got. It wasn't until I started teaching that the essence of art became clear to me. It's about communication. It's about ideas, possibilities, suggestions, questions about life and what our role is here on this rock. It's about education, information and inspiration.
My love affair in the arts is presently continued by teaching aspiring and working actors (in QLD & NSW) through my business and also through professional writing and media communications projects. My passion is connecting with people, encouraging creativity and ingenuity my students, cultivating digital media and creative writing, films, television... oh, and danger sports.
