I am currently studying a Bachelor of Contemporary Arts majoring in Theatre at the Inveresk campus of UTAS.
Where are you from?
South Australia. Specifically, a town called Woodside in the middle of the Adelaide Hills, about thirty minutes out of Adelaide.
Why did you choose Launceston?
One of my high school teachers was a graduate of this course and recommended it to me. I had heard other positive things from people I knew and I was already considering moving to another state, so this seemed like the perfect choice for me.
Where do you live?
I am currently living in a privately owned house with two other students from UTAS. I have been living here for 6 months now.
Where do you hang out?
Well, generally my friends and I will spend quite a bit of time just hanging around the Inveresk campus. It’s a great area and so between classes or sometimes just during the day if we have nothing on we’ll spend a fair bit of time there.
Where do you love to eat?
There are a number of nice places in town that offer a good lunch. There’s a great sushi place called Bento which is one of my favourites but there are quite a few other places to go. Burger's Got Soul is another one. The food there is truly amazing.
What do you like to do in Launceston?
The town has such a nice atmosphere that it’s great just wandering around with a few friends or having a bite to eat.
Where is your future headed?
To be perfectly honest I have no idea. I really wold like to work in theatre but in what capacity I am not sure. Right now my concern is just finishing the course I am currently taking.
Describe Launceston in three words.
Nice relaxing atmosphere.
If a movie were to be made in Launceston what genre would the city suit?
Film Noir. Definitely. Lots of old buildings and interesting light at night, it's very Robert Mitchum.
