A talent and actors agent with 30+ years’ experience, I specialise in helping actors build a lasting, successful career in acting and performing.
I represent actors in New Zealand, Australia, and through the industry networks I have built during my career, the U.S and U.K.
I am privileged to represent a small group of fantastic and hardworking people, 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.
Some prefer commercial work, some theatre including musical theatre and some are film and TV actors primarily.
My role is to work with them as individuals, to actively seek opportunities for them, to support and advise them on their journey.
