Excelsia College has helped me grow, not only in my musical thinking, but has helped me come out of my shell, allowing for a more ambitious and sophisticated compositional voice. I am currently working at Hillsong as an in-house composer for the Film and TV department. I also tour as a drummer and have just finished working on a trailer for a Peter Cousens film.

Studying at Excelsia College helped me to tackle a range of creative avenues. My studies have equipped me for performing as a vocalist, and an actor, or directing musicals with understanding of the place of faith in the creative arts

What I particularly appreciate about studying drama at Excelsia College are the opportunities to grow into a versatile actor. Since graduating in 2007 I have acted in numerous short films and TVC's (including IKEA, eBay, Volswagen and Sara Lee), performed at the Melbourne Comedy Festival, created a webseries, produced and performed in theatre productions with Alumni company Twisted Tree Treatre, and most recently am working as resident cast on new Foxtel sketch comedy show Open Slather.

Being able to witness first hand the professional production of a film from my initial concept all the way to being played on the big screen at Dendy Cinema was an invaluable experience for me as a student. Serving as both the writer during pre-production and Focus Puller/Camera Assistant during production enabled me to appreciate the evolution of a filmic project. This experience instilled such confidence within me as an artist that when graduating I felt fully equipped to enter the industry as a film maker.
