About Connor

Connor McCool is a Sydney-based maker, artist and musician.

During his time at NIDA, he has developed a passion for woodworking, electronics, metalwork, 3d modelling and 3d printing. More than anything though, Connor enjoys the challenges and problem-solving that comes with prop-making, regardless of the medium.

Building on his previous life experience as a touring musician, Connor has expanded and developed his skills working on NIDA theatrical productions, as well as TV shows and independent theatre.

After NIDA, Connor hopes to make a positive impact on the world with his making skills, creating ecologically sustainable, meaningful, long-lasting objects that bring joy to people’s lives.
