He has created and toured internationally 11 solo shows and 3 cast shows to date, in his award-winning and popular adult film-noir shows as character detective ‘Dirk Darrow’.

With this one, he dives into a new genre and a new demographic with this fantasy satire of a certain wizarding world. Originally from Philadelphia, he is currently hangs his hat in Adelaide.
