My approach to acting is no nonsense, down to earth and practical. I believe there are no secrets, only good principles. For most actors it's about being reminded of what they already know, and working with people to keep them moving forward.
I am a graduate of the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts, one of Australia's leading drama schools and the founder of StageMilk.com, Australia's largest acting website. I have worked across theatre, film and TV and have taught 100s of actors all around the world.

Perfect! I feel fortunate to have engaged Andrew as a coach. I am not an actor but rather a shy person who felt it valuable to practise engaging - to enhance my skills for social/ public situations.
He is a friendly and engaging coach; professional, knowledgeable and sensitive. He has the gift of being able to hold the room as a place of safety and then encourages me to take appropriate risks - always from a place of curiosity - always with a sense of twinship.
His strength is in helping me to utilise my vulnerabilities - to embrace and work with them. Please know that this is not my default position yet within a few sessions the results have been revealed and practised in the real world.
My sense of increased confidence has both surprised and pleased me immensely. So much so that we plan to continue this process some more. He is kind enough to engage with me in this unformulated journey. That's what curiosity is.
I whole hearted recommend Andrew as a coach: Results speak volumes.
