AGE: Twenty Two-ish.
BORN: Hay, in rural NSW. We have a Wikipedia article!
CURRENTLY LIVES: In an apartment I euphemistically refer to as my Batcave (it is slightly better lit than an actual cave), located in north-ish Sydney. Why not swing by for some olives and perhaps a game of Team Fortress?
Since Peter’s time with OTYP, he has “aspired to become a University Professor, after abandoning his initial choice of Batman due to lack of motivation”. Towards this aim, he has achieved an honours degree in politics and is currently undertaking post-graduate study in history.”
He was involved in several productions in 2005/6 including: The Blowfly Olympics, Rewind and Page To Stage. Peter said that his involvement with Outback Theatre shaped a lot of fond memories…
“Numerous seminal moments from my formative years were a consequence of Outback Theatre, including my first kiss (which, to my surprise was not at all like they are in a romantic comedy.) Yet, the whole experience was entertaining and engaging, offering opportunities for travel and adventure with interesting people, many of whom are still my Facebook friends.”
Currently: “Beyond attempting to look like Ryan Gosling, hastily trying to conclude an Honours thesis for Politics at Macquarie University – just as long as the European Union doesn’t collapse within the next month I won’t need to change my argument. Eventually, I plan on completing a PhD in the field of history, a qualification which will among other things enable me to fight Daleks and lecture undergraduates.
I think they’re probably my big achievements, there have been some smaller ones such as when I discussed domestic policy with Kevin Rudd on a street corner, made a really nice lasagne served on a bed of chicken for my friends and figured out that house Scotch tastes exactly the same as the pricey stuff in a cocktail.
Outback theatre, beyond being a worthwhile social endeavour, was fundamentally an exercise in communication, one that assisted in the development of my skills in this area.”
