One of my personal highlights of 2011 was doing some extra work on "The Cure" and getting to act alongside one of New Zealand's greatest actors, John Bach, it was such a pleasure and I learnt so much just from watching and observing (and cracking jokes).

Our team was made up of a mixture of experience and youthful enthusiasm, a great mix and a fantastic bunch of people who I really look forward to working with again on various projects.
I am eager to learn and also i'm good at taking directions (in my fulltime job this is a must). I look forward to meeting new and interesting people and helping to bring people's artistic visions to life.
At the moment I am relishing the chance to do some extra work and also some lead acting in the short film format, I really like the challenge of telling a story in a limited space of time.
I'm also part of a new production unit being put together to write and film our own projects, so far I have 3 scripts that I have written, with 2 short films "Bouncer" & "Sisterhood" slated for filming in early 2013. Other projects including "Through A Father's Eyes" and "Karma's A Bitch" are to follow.
