Prior to beginning acting 10 years ago, John was a professional musician based in Los Angeles for several years. After this he studied at The University of Melbourne and was a founding member of Omniprop Productions - a theatre company comprised of classics students which produced Greek and Roman plays. Shortly after discovering his love of theatre John began acting in independent films and TV shows.
John knows several ancient languages and speaks French, Spanish and Italian. When he is not acting or working as a freelance director, DOP or sound designer/recorder, John produces techno and practises yoga and meditation. John has been studying at 16th Street for the last 2 years and takes weekly classes in voice and Alexander technique. He has also trained at The Film Space and at TAFTA after taking classes in Theatre Studies at The University of Melbourne.
In August 2012 John worked with Susan Batson as a participant of her Ex-er Actor Master Class held at Gasworks. During the 5 day master class Susan helped John refine his audition technique, giving him various tools to enable him to reach a much deeper and more profound sense of truth in his acting. In 2012 John also audited master classes by Larry Moss, Ivana Chubbuck and Ellen Burston.
