I am an Australian-raised, New York City-based dude who’s trying not to suck at Life.
- I launched my comedy/philosophy podcast Thompson’s Top Five in June 2013. Thompson’s Top Five is a bi-weekly show fueled by gonzo Twitter ranting and long-form interviews. I’ve pushed the limits of the medium by conducting two world-first “NYC BikeCast” episodes, which involved recording live podcasts whilst riding my bicycle from one New York City borough to another. In addition to TTF, I’ve also been a guest on numerous other podcasts.
- I received a BA in English from the University of Western Australia in 2009 and I’m a blogger, short story writer and Tweetist. Two of my short stories were featured in the cult online journal Inky Squib Magazine. One story “Comfort Toe: A Horror Story Starring The Charlie-Bit-My-Finger Lads” was turned into a 60-minute audiobook which is now available for free download.
- I’ve been working as an actor in New York City since 2013. An alumni of the University of Western Australia’s Dramatic Society, I’ve been cast in feature films, television productions, independent shorts and multi-platform commercials for international brands. I have several IMDB credits, evidence of which can be found in my acting reel. In 2015, I was nominated in the “Best Lead Actor” category (alongside Malcolm McDowell of “A Clockwork Orange” fame) in the 7th International Filmmaker Festival of World Cinema Awards for my performance as ‘Michael’ in the 2014 horror feature “Bury”.
- I was the lead singer, rhythm guitarist and songwriter for the Perth-based garage rock band Sons of Columbia who released an EP in 2007. Since relocating to New York City, I’ve collaborated with Chambray Records artist and producer Brett Cimbalik, releasing two EP’s under the moniker Sigh Gone. The music of Sigh Gone has been featured in the “This Week in Crain’s New York” podcast. In addition to the writing, performance and production of all Sigh Gone songs, I also wrote, directed and edited the music video for the 2015 Sigh Gone single, “Blue Eyed Soul”.
