President's Message

I am extremely proud to be President of this union. I have been a union member since 1991. In that time, I have worked as a background performer, stand in, actor (series lead and day player), I have done commercials, voice over, radio drama and animation. I have personally worked with our stunt performers, puppeteers, choreographers, and singers. Over the years I have felt a kinship with all our sister unions as we successfully, side by side, created one of the most sought-after production centres in the world.
