Grass roots. Salt of the Earth. Family focused. A formidable Actor trained in a number of disciplines, his solid work ethic ensures he is in constant pursuit of training and personal development. Val has life experience as a Rural Firefighter, Coast Guard, Justice of the Peace and brandishes qualifications in Scuba Diving, Boating, Civil Construction, Forklift Operation, and possesses a Working With Children Check and is an Accredited Victoria Police Firearms Safety Instructor. His love of theatre led him to the Graham Corry School of Drama, as a teenager he made his professional acting debut in the modern day interpretation of Aristophanes’ "The Birds", and acclaimed performances in numerous Short and Sweet productions. His love of singing and music lead to the stage of the iconic Sydney Opera House (he sports a strong Tenor), and he has relentlessly pursued his love of performance and training through NIDA, Screenwise, 16th Street and Howard Fine and ongoing training and mentoring with Dr. Robert Marchand PhD. With four children, he can obviously multitask, and is suited to the “loving Father”, “harassed Dad” comedic persona, with the ability to turn it all the way up to eleven as the “furious parent” and “gun toting protector”. A keen voice actor, Val can call up numerous accents, speaks Greek and can throw in a smattering of Italian and French, all with solid reproduction and pronunciation. Val is suited to fierce, military and law enforcement characters. He is also befitting to darker underbelly roles as an assassin, adulterer and domestic abuser. AS FILM MAKER His current project is "The 100". A War Veterans Initiative. www.the100.org.au He is a member of the Films4Change production team. www.films4change.org.au Val also teaches through his Digital Futures/Recovery Through Film and Food initiative. www.digitalfutures.org.au AS SOCIAL JUSTICE WARRIOR VSRC (Veteran Suicide Royal Commission) www.vsrc.org.au
