Hey friend, I’m Broni, and here is the thing - I dislike bio’s, I don’t like reading them, I don’t like writing them, I don’t like them being how you make up your mind about me. There are far better representations of me on the inter-webs than this particular page. A list of things I've done or am about to do seems antiquated. As if telling you that I once was paid a handsome sum to perform at an after-school care program or that my music took me to a sweet hang out session with Kevin Smith is going to compel you to listen to me, book me, give me money… what have you.
At this point, creatively, I have little interest in telling you where I've been or where I'm going. What matters is what I'm doing and who I am right now.
That being said, though… Let's get through the formalities, maybe cover what you came here to read.
Heres the run-down. I’m a creative goofball. I wear many hats, and I’m pretty good at wearing the ones I’ve chosen… That's why I chose them. I’m a singer-songwriter, director, comedian, improviser, teacher, music & sound producer for sketch comedy/other artists/web-content.
If you need me for any of these skills I possess, I’d be thrilled to help you out/perform for you/teach you/whatever-else, you can get in touch with me through this form
I'm currently studying at the school of life and running for class captain.
Nice to meet you, let's be nice to each other.

"Broni brings many invaluable qualities to his coaching. He’s calm, supportive and efficient, and effortlessly creates a safe environment. He has a lot of knowledge about improvisation, but what’s infectious is his passion for the artform. He is invested in his students’ progress, a clear communicator, emotionally connected, and always brings the fun. He is also a kickarse player.
I really get the sense from Broni that he loves teaching; he certainly has the capacity to bring out the best in even the most nervous student. Safe hands, ability to a high level, and he is also open and curious about improvisation for himself. I unreservedly recommend working with Broni." - Fiona Scott-Norman (Comedian, Arts writer)
"In 8 weeks Broni managed to teach me more about myself than I thought possible, find things in me that I didn't know existed and gave me confidence to take chances even when I was terrified" - Tiana Hogen (Actor, Comedian)
