For more than 30 years Kevin has been training actors at the highest levels. His insight into the craft of acting is second to none. If you want to understand what defines a professional Australian actor on the world stage, Kevin of anyone has the answers. He was there when a young Cate Blanchett walked through the doors as Head Of Acting at NIDA (National Institute of Dramatic Arts) helping her to become one of the greatest actors in the world, and for years Kevin was there for many more; auditioning over 2,500 young hopefuls each year, as well as working outside as a both an actor and director.
