As far as screen acting I've only ever done personal projects (as I am interested in film making/editing and portraying different kinds of characters from different origins) but I have recently been cast a lead role in a short film in Canberra. In 2010 I was in Child Players ACT stage production of "Peter Pan" with myself playing Peter. I have been in 3 well assembled school musical productions with my high school which include Elton John's Aida, Once on this Island, Les Miserables and most recently FOOTLOOSE. For these I played relative small roles/chorus and a lead in my final high school year for FOOTLOOSE. Previous 5 years (2006 - 2010) I've been in 5 QL2 Youth Dance productions in the series called the CHAOS PROJECT(s). These projects involve telling a relatively detailed story through movement (dance). When I began attending school I overcame incredible shyness and gained confidence by performing on stage and found that being in front of an audience was an easy and relaxed environment for me and I've always loved it. And I guess that's about it. Hope you give me a shot. I'm Risa, I hope you have a lovely day/evening! Thanks for taking the time to read this and for putting up the project/s for availability.

Modelling

Modeling experience

Beginner, starting out


Minimal. I did an etiquette course with Victoria's Models and did promotional work whilst under their employment for Westfield and Chatterbrand. I am no longer employed by the agency.

Music

Songbird (Fleetwood Mac Cover by Risa)

My mic is bad. Had to hold back more than I would've liked to. It's more a live ballad. Thanks :)

I've been playing the guitar for 6 years and that's ongoing. In my school concert band I play clarinet, which isn't nearly as major, but it's definitely helped with developing skill and knowledge of theory. I did piano lessons for almost a couple of years and was of around grade 3/4. I no longer take lessons but I still play.
I'm a singer more than anything. I've worked hard to develop my range and technique and I'm verging, and I've been invited to be the lead vocalist in a jazz band that have a gig at a winery near Lake George.
