An actors agent with 30+ years’ experience, I help actors build a lasting, successful career in the performing arts.
I represent film, TV and commercial actors in New Zealand and Australia and, utilising my strong relationships established over the years, the U.S and UK.
I am privileged to represent a small group of fantastic and hardworking performers, most of whom have been with me for over 5 years and many for over 20 years.
Every one of my clients is on a journey……all in a different place and many on a different path.
My role is to work with them as individuals, to actively seek opportunities for them, to support and advise them on their journey.
