Headshots

I absolutely love getting new headshots. I only do it once a year but its one of my favourite parts of being in this business. Especially this time, I had a great photographer taking my shots. I love how they came out. I love photos in general, I really can’t get enough of black and…

Tool, The Driving Force.

Before I started acting, I was a diesel mechanic. I remember first starting out in drama school and just saying my lines thinking that’s what acting was. I soon learned that just like a mechanic, tools are the driving force to getting the job done.  The tools to an actor are their skills, honed in to be able to build…

Brush off the Acting Dust

When you leave something sitting for a few weeks it starts to build up dust. The same can be said for you tools as an actor, well it is for me anyway.   I try and keep my tools working, so I don’t forget how to use them but lately I get so caught up with life. A…

Finding The Right Agent

Some people find it easy and some hard, I was the latter. When I graduated drama school, I like many other actors after a few years in the comfort of a school atmosphere assume agents will just want me and then my career would take off. It wasn’t like that at all. I had peaked…

Paleo Apple crumble, makes me thumble.

I’ve always had the sweetest tooth and when I decided to take up the paleo way I thought I was going to loose all the good stuff. But I quickly realised that there are better desserts, ones that I enjoy more and I don’t get those sugar highs and lows from. My sister and I…

The Cliché Game

The past week has been good to me. I’ve had 4 auditions, one tv pilot, one short film and two commercials. Now comes the cliché of “the waiting game” to see if I get any of the roles. It is often the hardest part of being an actor. As often as I say to myself “just let it go and don’t think about it again” I have people around me who support me always asking how…

Choc Mini Bundt Cake

This has quickly become one of my favourite paleo desserts and its so simple to make, that even I could do it. its a spinoff of another recipe and rather than making a full sized bundt cake my sister had some mini bundt cake tiny around so we decided to use them and they worked…

Tales of a Procrastinator

I’ve been procrastinating my whole life. It first started at a young age, my mother would  sit next to me when I was doing my homework to keep me focused on the task at hand and that’s still a problem today. The last few weeks I’ve been so busy with my retail job that my…

New Year, Same Hard Working Me

Happy new year all. Its been a crazy start to the new year already. As the title implies I’m one of those people who don’t believe in waiting for the new year to be proactive. Before the new year, my wonderful girlfriend helped me devise a plan for the next few months to stay active…

Maple Cinnamon Bundt Cake

I love this cake but it didn’t come without its learning curves. This is a very moist cake. The first time my sister and i tried to bake it, we didn’t use a Bundt tin and it really didn’t turn out, the outside was on the darker side and the inside was still uncooked. It…
