Any wise words for Yo Pros interested in doing Revue next year?
Just do it. You gain nothing from waiting and delaying, but on the flip side, by getting involved you'll have the opportunity to have fun, being funny, with likeminded young professionals. You'll make friends for life and memories that you'll never forget.

Any hidden talents?
I can do a scarily accurate impersonation of 90s reggae musician Shaggy. Not a particularly relevant talent in 2017, but there you have it.

Whats your favorite thing about being involved with the Revue so far?
Being given the opportunity, through co-directing the show, to empower an amazing group of young professionals to realise their creative talents and visions. They endlessly impress me with their talent, drive, and way with a pun.

You have 50 in your pocket on a Friday night out where would you go?
If I’m not off reviewing something, I’d start with a few after-work drinks at Sweatshop Brew Kitchen ($10 a glass) – mostly to check out their awesome live band ‘The Beat Council. I’d then head to the Fed for their ‘late shift’ menu, specifically the lemon meringue pie ($11).  After that I’d pop in to The Classic’s ‘Late & Live’ comedy show ($15) which happens every Friday and features a mix of top Kiwi comics and up-and-comers. A solid night with a few dollars to spare.!
