About Me

Welcome and thanks for dropping by.

​I joined Actors Equity in 1976 so I guess you could say I am a ​career actor. I originally trained in London at E.15 Stratford ​and later with Ms Uta Hagen in New York. I enjoyed a long ​career in television and film then moved into teaching and ​coaching. My passion remains the Theatre and I currently ​work with my wife's company - Theatre Excentrique, which ​focuses on plays that were not originally written in English. ​See:

If there is a project you have in mind, just email me.

Cheers, ​Gerry

30 years of experience

as a corporate trainer

Like many actors I have diversified into several fields. I would ​encourage all actors to do the same as the summit of Mt Everest in ​only 3 metres square. Not a lot of room at the top.

I taught at NIDA for 9 years and created their 1-year TV Presenters ​course. I was also the senior trainer within their Corporate ​Performance division. For The Actors Centre in Sydney, I have ​taught various drop-in classes. For the Australian College of ​Entertainers in Melbourne I was Head of Drama. Currently, I am an ​affiliate lecturer at UNSW coaching business presentation skills for ​the full-time MBA candidates.

My teaching and training philosophy is informed by my academic ​foundation, industry knowledge and practical life lessons.

Whether you are looking for a one or two day intensive workshop or ​perhaps a course that runs over several weeks, I can create ​something to suit your precise needs.

My workshops are designed to be challenging, motivational and fun ​with loads of practical experience (doing not talking), all within a ​safe, creative and constructive environment.
