Shane Porteous is Rod
Shane Porteous started his career on stage, notably with a long stint at the Old Tote Theatre Company playing classics including Oedipus directed by Tyrone Guthrie and, with Ron Haddrick, the original production of Williamson’s What if You Died Tomorrow?, which toured to London.
Shane has also worked as an animation artist, providing storyboards and layouts for cartoon series such as Popeye, Blinky Bill and the animated feature The Magic Pudding.
However, for the last 16 years his career has centred on writing for television, including scripts for A Country Practice, Children's Hospital, All Saints, Home and Away and Neighbours, for which he twice won AWGIES. Shane claims he’s been a trainee codger for years and is proud he’s finally graduated.
