Ingle has collected a broad range of experience over four decades spent as an actor, writer and teacher. With a PhD in Philosophy and a Bachelor Honours Degree in Arts, he brings an abundance of practical and theoretical knowledge to the team.
His acting career began with his performance as Joseph in his school Nativity play. After many years acting in professional theatre for prestigious companies such as Black Swan Theatre and Perth Theatre, he relishes the experience of applying his skills in different formats and purposes. His experience in community theatre includes researching and writing a dramatised school history for St Hilda’s Anglican School for Girls and holding residency at the Windybrow Theatre in Johannesburg, creating theatre with homeless refugees from all over Africa. For both experiences, he found he required equal amounts of courage.
In his work as a freelance copywriter, Ingle has been the speechwriter for the Chancellor and Vice Chancellor of the Australian Catholic University, in-house video scriptwriter for a multinational finance corporation, restaurant reviewer for Dimmi booking services, and cowriter of the Constitution of the Association of Blind Citizens.
Ingle’s television experience includes roles in Neighbours, Prisoner and a regular role in the locally made TV show, Ship to Shore. He has had roles in the films Under the Lighthouse Dancing and Two Fists, One Heart. Ingle has toured the world with his highly successful one man shows including award winning “The Exploding Breakfast”. Ingle delights in all chances he is given to broaden his range of skills and thrives on any opportunities that his work with The Experience Lab brings.
