RECENT

Recent Work

Various
Jan 2006Dec 2016

Proudest moment of 2016 was being asked to collaborate with producers from City of Sydney for the Vivid Festival 'Laser Water Show'. I not only performed on film in various elements of the live media but contributed choreography, wardrobe and makeup styling.

The end of the year see's me as a lead character in the Christmas children's pantomime presented by Chadstone Christmas Stories.  

For the past 5 years now Ive had the working pleasure of choreographing and directing the Goyder Pavilions performance production show for the Royal Horticultural and agricultural society as part of the Royal Adelaide show. A big budget entertainment piece originally created for the 175th year anniversary of the society and due to its success and popularity of its now fifth year, looks to remain an annual event.

In recent years, I've starred on the children's television show 'The Fairies' where I was also the show’s choreographer, and more notably as the colourful runner-up on Australia's first season of ‘So You Think You Can Dance' in 2008.  2012 saw the first heat win of the short lived TV show 'Everybody Dance Now' as part of the all male cabaret troupe 'Boylesque  and a lead role in the adult pantomime 'Little Orphan Trashley' at the Sydney Opera House. Recent film credits play a lead role in the dramatic short film 'Criticism' shown at festivals in 2015 and also will pop up on several episodes of the comedy web series 'I luv u but'.
