Being an actor, I'm really fortunate to work with a lot of really incredible photographers.
I work with Anson Smart, David Zaugh, Dana Patrick, Susan Stitt, and Trent Lanz.

My perfect blend is an alkaline, plant-based diet of whole foods. I eat a high percentage of raw foods (leafy greens, non-starchy veggies, low sugar fruits, and sprouted nuts and seeds). The amount of raw foods depends on the season. In the hotter months, I eat a lot of raw foods. In the cooler weather, I eat a bit more cooked foods.
I start my day with two 16oz glasses of lemon water (filtered water with the juice of 1 lemon squeezed into the glasses). I then enjoy a green smoothie or soup for breakfast, depending on the weather. I always mix up the leafy greens I use for variety, and to avoid oxalate toxicity. I then enjoy a salad, wrap, or soup for lunch, and a variety of raw and cooked foods for dinner. I always include probiotic-rich foods like kefir or cultured vegetables with every meal.
For exercise, I mix it up. I usually go for an early morning hike or walk, and do some meditation. I also love indoor and outdoor rock climbing, resistance training, yoga, and pilates.
I also get in my infrared sauna every day, have regular colonics, stay hydrated by drinking lots of water and high-water-content foods, and get lots of sleep and rest.
A big part of wellness is emotional. I maintain a positive attitude and set mindful intentions.
We are all different with varying requirements depending on our age, geneology, stress levels, climate, diet, activity levels, and emotional situation.
Apply the “Look, Listen, Learn and Teach” approach to lifestyle changes. Look for the signs of “less than perfect health”; listen to your body’s reactions to foods; learn what works and what doesn’t to find your perfect blend.
I am a self taught home cook. I don't have any formal chef training.
I learnt to cook from my mum, from my own experimentation, and from cooking classes I've taken all over the world during my travels.
I live in Los Angeles.
I'm Australian. I grew up in Melbourne, and moved to Singapore when I was 16. I then moved to L.A to attend UCLA, where I studied acting. I moved back to Australia in 1996, and eventually moved back to L.A in 2010.
I now work as an actor and voice over artist, and as an author, speaker, and recipe developer.
I do not have serious food allergies. I have an intolerance to wheat and dairy, and choose not to eat gluten, dairy, eggs, or meat. I do eat a small amount of soy and grains.
