TV Commercials, Tv Shows & Movies

1994-2105

How I Started in the Film & TV Industry.


I was holidaying in Los Angeles and visited Universal Studios LA. While watching a performance on stage, I was selected from the crowd to play a character and while backstage. I was asked if I worked in the industry and a staff member suggested I should start.

Once returning to Australia and after some more through. I joined a talent agency and booked into a 3month full-time film and tv course. Upon finishing the course I immediately started working on movies, tv shows, tv commercials, including a lead role audtion.

Firstly as an extra, two small speaking roles. The first speaking role was on a TV commercial and then a TV show, including a stand-in/body double role on a movie and two more lead role auditions.

Many years later upon returning to the industry, I started working in-house for a boutique talent agency. At this talent agency, I had various responsibilities including starting to design a workshop of an extra.
