I guess I would describe myself as an actor, musician, father and someone who occasionally gets asked to do interviews for arts magazines.

I have been thinking for a long time I should do yoga, it seems like everyone who does yoga is healthy!

Who inspires you and why?
I am inspired by anyone who is working hard to achieve rather than succeed.

What would you do to make a difference in the world?
Make everyone do yoga.

Favourite holiday destination and why?
Burleigh Heads because I love the beach.

When friends come to town, what attraction would you take them to, and why?
Glenbrook National Park – it’s a very underrated attraction in Sydney and I have a bit of local knowledge.

What are you currently reading?
Unfollow by Megan Phelps-Roper which is an autobiography about her experience growing up and ultimately leaving the Westboro Baptist Church.

What are you currently listening to?
A lot of Kurt Elling who is a jazz singer from Chicago.

Watching fireworks with my 3 and 6 year old children.
