“It’s not who you are underneath, it’s what you do that defines you” - Batman!
Holy insightful quotes Batman! So I am a sum of the things I’ve done and the choices I’ve made. So what can I say about myself?
I’ve been lucky enough to have a career in the film industry for the past 13 years. I’ve got to experience working in TV, commercials, corporate films, and best of all, I’ve spent the majority of that time working on Hollywood films.
My proudest achievement in my film career are the friendships I’ve made! I’ve met such amazing people along the way that have helped define who I am (not Batman). I have gained friends for life!
My love of film has also led to a passion for photography! When I ‘m not working, I can often be found behind my camera. Portrait and headshot photography is currently my obsession. But I also love wandering the streets in search of beauty.
My other love is S.C.U.B.A Diving. So much so that in 2012 I became a dive instructor. I can’t adequately describe the joy I get from it. Once you’re in the water, the rat race stops (No one can call you, no emails) and you are just left admiring your surroundings… Majestic! Ever seen a whale shark?!
Being half Australian, I also get a little obsessed with sport. I like rugby league, rugby union, MMA and most things in between. The last few years I have enjoyed learning Gracie Jiu-Jitsu… But I’m a terrible student.
Finally home is where the heart is, and my heart is in Tokyo. I’ve been to many places, but Tokyo is the place I feel most comfortable. You would think that not speaking Japanese would be more of a problem…
“It is not our abilities that show what we truly are... it is our choices”. – Albus Dumbledore
Dumbledore is so wise! I am proud to say that even though I’m not the smartest, most athletic, sexy or funny person in the world, I am me. And accepting this has led me to be better than I ever thought I could be, and to do things I never thought I could do.
