Winning the QANTAS award which enabled me to go to Los Angeles and begin a career there. Another highlight is the people I met whilst at AFTRS, I still keep in touch with many of them and we are all deeply supportive of each other.
Recent highlights include Pam & Tommy, Maid and feature film Dreamin’ Wild, which premiered at the Venice Film Festival.
