Actor • MC • Singer • Performer

G’day and welcome to my official website. I am an Australian performer born and raised in Hobart, Tasmania. From Stage and screen, to radio and corporate speaking, singing and charity work, there isn’t much I can’t do for you. Enjoy exploring my many hats and please get in contact if there is something I, or my talented friends could do for you.
