Rowan was exposed to circus, physical theatre and street performance from a very young age. It was through high school drama and Christchurch Polytechnics Circo Arts School, however, where he first pursued his interest in the performing arts.
After high school, he jumped straight into a teaching degree. Some soul-searching and traveling followed before he went on to complete an ICT degree at Ara Institute of Canterbury. After working in IT for two years as a software tester, Rowan felt an itch that he could use his performance skills to make a positive difference in the world.
Since joining UniSmart in 2019, he enjoys improvisational and physical theatre workshops to further his professional development. His spare time is full of surfing, skiing, diving, climbing, hiking, and adventures in the wilderness.
Rowan is very excited to be a part of the UniSmart team to entertain and educate young minds worldwide.
