From the age of five, Ashley believed he could be a super hero. But until he gets bitten by a spider or covered in radioactive goo, he has settled for using his creative powers in other areas. Ashley has several years experience in wrangling small children onto stage while simultaneously writing, directing and acting in his home town annual Scout ShowTime productions. Apart from theatre, Ashley likes to write his own short stories and hopes to publish something worthy one day. He is also beginning his academic career by pursuing university study with the end goal of possibly being a psychologist.

He saw this tour of Malaysia as another adventure that will enhance his intercultural education and experience in performing with Asians.
