1965. Born in Gympie, a small gold-mining town in Queensland, Australia.
1987. Arrived in Hong Kong. A month later, I was a guest singer at Alan Tam’s concert (one of Hong Kong’s superstars). I then taught English to make ends meet until the end of the year.
1988. Serendipitously began acting at TVB (Hong Kong’s premier TV station). I have been acting on a full-time contract basis with TVB ever since. Filming in Cantonese, I was involved in more than 200 different television series, some of them quite memorable.
1997. “Magic is the Moonlight”: My ﬁrst stage production; a supporting role. We performed 31 shows at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts.
2002. “Teresa Teng Forever”: My second stage production; a supporting role, this time involving singing. Again, we performed 24 shows at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts.
2004. Having hit a brick wall in my attempts to improve my acting abilities, I attended the Lee Strasberg Institute in L.A. for 3 months. The study helped me immensely.
2005. “Perfume”; My third stage production. My ﬁrst role as a co-lead. We performed 8 shows at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre.
2006. Wanting to improve my singing and also in preparation for “They’re Playing Our Song”, I studied daily with Peisha McPhee in L.A. for four weeks. The improvement was incredible.
2007. “They’re Playing Our Song”; My fourth stage production. My ﬁrst lead. Just one actor and one actress, we performed the 2-hour musical play 10 times at the Hong Kong Arts Centre.
2008. I declined to renew my contract with TVB. After 20 years of serving them faithfully, it was time for me to move on and look for new adventures, and new avenues of continued improvement in my vocation.
Music and acting are my future.
