So a few people have been asking about my original music?
I have recently started working with the very talented Tommy Rando and we are writing some original tracks together. I should have some things out later this year. Will keep you posted)
It’s been a fairly big hiatus from the original scene over the last 10 to 15 years, as I have been focusing in on the acting and also working on the cover scene (to pay the mortgage ha.)…
I was listening to my old original band Heavy Human Traffic and got all nostalgic. We recorded an EP, two albums and a live acoustic album. I had a blast working with Michael Brennan, Joe Sorace and Jerry Papadakis back in the day. I still gig with Joe every now and then on the cover scene in Melbourne.
I added these recently to all the online outlets, so you can find them on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play etc. I will post up the links separately. All this music is around 15 to 20 years old now OMG time goes by so quick. We all caught up recently and there were a few idle threats of a reunion gig. We shall see…

But anyways if you wanna check it out that would be ace.
I’m looking forward to being more active playing original music again in the near future.
Very excited to announce that I have just been attached to a new Australian independent film “Nulla”.
No firm shooting schedule as yet, but hopefully early 2018 cameras will be rolling.
Filming for “Mutt”, has commenced over this last week.
I have enjoyed diving into the character of ‘Keith’ who runs a dog fighting ring. The story centres around a female character Odette who looses her dog during a break in to the family home. Through her investigative exploits she enters the shady world of dog fighting.
Filming will be happening over the next 4 weeks. Its promising to be full of large sets and big cast numbers and brought together on an extremely micro budget which is very impressive.

A big shout out to all the cast and crew of “7 Storeys Down”. Thank you for having me on set and letting me have a bit of a play with you all.
Always great fun to be playing the tough guy. Even when you’re paired up with a 6ft 5 inch bodybuilder!!
Look out for this fantastic independent Australian feature film in late 2017.
7 Storeys down was written by Phoenix Raei and starring Kate Lister. Little Fish Films have done a commendable job bringing this production together.

Awesome Evening to be had with the first screening of Oh Brother on Friday at the Loop Project Space & Bar in Melbourne.
I just want to say a huge shout out to all the cast and crew for a great effort all round. It was great to see the end result and also to see most of you again if only briefly. Cant wait to do it again.
