I completed my training as a prop maker and set builder at WAAPA in 2018, and spent a year working freelance in 2019 as a prop/set builder. Across 2020 and 2021, I began specialization in silicone, working as a Prosthetic Technician and Silicone Specialist. I now work full time as Workshop Supervisor for TraumaSim Group, manufacturing silicone goods for medical training purposes.

During my employment as a Silicone Specialist, I have trained as a moulage technician and created casualties for numerous medical emergency simulations.

As a fabricator I have experience with mould making, fiberglass, woodwork, welding, sculpture, scenic art, textiles and mixed-media.

 

I retain all these skills, and have been working as a freelance puppet maker and artist outside of my 9 - 5 for the last two years. My primary artistic interest lies in puppet design and construction.
