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…

Oh No…Risky Business

What do I mean by that? Well in terms of acting, what I mean is, there are jobs we take on sometimes that we don’t fully trust. I’ve had my fair share of learning moments in this industry. When I first started I was so eager to get into acting, I signed up to an…

No More Store Bought Banana Bread (Paleo)

I spoke about the foods I eat in a previous post (The Paleo Actor) and I think it’s time I start sharing a little more, so fortnightly alternating between my acting blogs I will be introducing a blog all about food and health. In the food blog I will be posting recipes and alternatives to some of our foods that we just can’t seem to give up. I will also have my sister co-writing as some of…

YouFame

I had always seen becoming an actor as a formula to a journey that is timeless, go to drama school, put in that sheer hard work and you will get noticed. But the more we head into the future with new and improved technology with things like really good cameras that are easily affordable now and places that your content will be seen like YouTube and Vimeo, the more I see the formula I thought would…
