Am very excited to be delving into a deeper understanding of how and where the creative and communication industries cross over. Since childhood I have been excited by my own imaginings and have enjoyed the process of communicating those dreams through communication. I loved telling stories and it's fair to say I grew up in a family culture where telling jokes and exaggerating stories was the norm. My grandfather loved to talk in rhyming slang and looking back I see his influence directed me toward the communicative arts. Through out high school I was involved in our Musical Productions and formed my first band 'Audio Hangover' with Rohan Gunstone AKA Bang Mango Cools. Straight after high school it was off to TAFE to study the foundations of performing arts which open the door to me studying acting at the renowned NIDA. During those years my older brother and hero Paul passed away of cancer which lead me on a deep soul searching journey where I found that nothing could articulate my feelings more exactly for me than music with it's ability to express the abstract and the raw. It was here in music I would most concretely form my sense of self; it was here I could bring together my love of language, poetry, philosophy, performing and story telling in a celebration and transcendence of my own personal experience of being alive, but still I felt there was more to say and so I've reached out through art, community work and now onto film and animation in my quest to articulate beauty and meaning and life. I'm excited by this industry perspectives subject because of my interest in where these communication mediums cross over.
