He represented Australia by performing at the Cirque de Demain circus competition in Paris in 2012. He also stars in the ABC and Chinese TV co-production, kids circus TV show “Hoopla Doopla” as Zap the comic unicycling postman.

He is a founder of the comedy trio "Splash Test Dummies" to great acclaim and rave reviews in The Age comparing it to “Bay Watch meets The Three Stooges”
