Director at Auteur, Australia
It was while studying a Bachelor of Law/Economics at Sydney University that Les got his first start in acting. He was cast alongside Vin Diesel in the cult sci-fi classic Pitch Black. Fighting for survival and being chased by aliens in the dark confirmed his love and passion for acting and all forms of storytelling. He further appeared in shows like Heartbreak High and All Saints before graduating with a Bachelor of Economics after which he immediately accepted a place at Australia’s prestigious NIDA (National Institute of Dramatic Art). Les went on to work with regarded actors including Robert De Niro and Al Pacino and was the lead actor in the award winning, critically acclaimed film Cedar Boys. He was awarded the notable Mike Walsh Fellowship in 2007 and went to Los Angeles to continue his studies in film and storytelling. A trend started to develop over the years with Les’s family and friends asking for his assistance with their work presentations, job interviews and other corporate related communication scenarios. They were all successful in their pursuits which solidified for Les that his combined academic
and performance degrees meant he could offer a unique and effective form of communication training. Since that time Les has worked with a multitude of corporate and creative sectors including CEO’s and senior leaders among leading multi national companies, their respective teams of employees and many other individuals who endeavour to be the most dynamic and impacting communicator they can be.
