Smooth or crunchy?
Nah, plain toast instead.
Where are you from? Where did you grow up?
From Melbourne originally, but I moved to Geelong to finish secondary education and begin my journey into performance.
How did you get into dancing and/or performing?
I got into dancing at the age of 3 because I was the only child with the attention span to pay attention for the whole hour of "music workshop" in kindergarten AND clap in time... Flash forward 13 years and I was performing both in and out of school leading to a passion for not only dancing but acting, musical theatre, film-making and design.
What's your favourite/best performance you've been involved in? Any other highlights?
Had the privilege to tour with BBC Worldwide with Dr Who and the Symphonic Spectacular not once, but TWICE in two years. I got to embody fan favourite aliens, travel Australia and New Zealand, and brush shoulders with British celebrities and producers! Playing "The Silence" was actually very reminiscent of another masked character I portrayed in the last major dance work I collaborated with Xavier on - Headcase - where I played "The Embodiment". I got to cause all sorts of nightmares, which is always a fun experience!!
What's your experience with Attitude been like in the past?
Bloody Fantastic! Enough said.
Where have you studied?
Jason Coleman's Ministry of Dance & with Rob Sturrock's Industry Dance Intensive.
What do you do for work?
Performer/Creative and Teacher - Freelance Videography & Graphic Design... And I'm a Jedi.
What are your interests outside of dance?
I love creating stories, whether writing, drawing, directing or video-work. It's a massive passion of mine! As well as collecting horrendous D-Grade movies and riding my bike.
What inspires you?
I find inspiration in every day - listening to music, hearing friend's anecdotes, watching really good or really crappy film and TV.... Great music inspires me the most, closely followed by interesting and intricate artworks/designs.

I have a 15 year old Chinese aunty in Canberra, and I have 5 names.
