Erik Surjan has a flair for acting, and it is something he has been pursuing with determination. He is currently studying the craft with Bill McCluskey, who over a thirty year career has appeared in many productions on stage and screen, and has worked with such figures as Meryl Streep.
Erik Surjan has managed to make a small mark himself. He has appeared in TV ads in Australia, and has also been in several instructional videos. He has studied with the Sydney Screen Acting Group’s Screen Acting Workshop and with PAC Screen Acting. Erik Surjan has also studied at Actors Centre Australia in the Acting Edge, and with Faith Martin Workshops. Apart from that, Erik Surjan has also been trained in voice and acting in several other forums and workshops.
All of this came after Erik Surjan attended college. He received a Bachelor of Business in Marketing and in Management from Edith Cowan University, both degrees in 2003. More recently, Erik Surjan completed work on his Master of Marketing degree, which he received from Monash University in 2012.
Along the way, Erik Surjan found the time to train for and compete in Track and Field events all across Australia. He has competed in the 100 Metre, 400 Metre, and 1500 Metre race, and in the 110 Metre hurdles. He has been in pole vault events, the long jump, the high jump, and the shot put. Erik Surjan has competed in these events individually, and in the decathlon, which combines these and other events in a classic but grueling two-day competition.
