Adelaide Fringe Awards

Adelaide Fringe Award Winner

Over the past the past four years I have been fortunate enough to produce and star in a brand new stage show every twelve months which have debuted each time in my home town at the Adelaide Fringe.

In 2012, “MindBlown” was the first production focusing specifically on Close-Up Magic – it was a huge success and won the People’s Choice Adelaide Fringe Award.

In 2013 my first stage production “3” featured fellow Adelaide performers Vinh Giang and Shahin Zareei. It debuted to a sold out run, where we released a further 8 shows due to popularity. It was also awarded an Adelaide Fringe Award.
