CQUniversity has world class teachers, state of the art facilities and Mackay was the perfect location for focusing on my studies. I graduated with a BA Music (Specialisation Musical Theatre) and this degree truly allowed me to use what I learnt in all aspects of the entertainment and marketing industries from how I perform on stage, handle a casting, and how to work in a call back. It’s an exciting journey but a tough one too. Learning to grow a thick skin is a must.
I have credits across television with networks such as SBS (Deep Water), ABC (Rake, Carlotta, Cleverman, Four Corners) and TEN (I Will Survive), TV commercials such as Luna Park Sydney, Expedia and Bundaberg Rum and supporting roles in the feature films “What if it Works?” which has won two film festivals as well as “On Hold” the movie musical.
During university, I’d tell my student self to practise more and take advantage of the facilities and teachers around. It’s all trial and error in the real world so fail gloriously during practise at Uni. After graduation, get as much experience as possible before finding representation.
