Adrian Beck is a part-time author, part-time TV producer and full-time doting dad of two girls. He once played an alien on TV, which was much more successful than the time he played a gangster or a postman. Possibly because he wore an alien mask and it did most of the acting for him.
The Alien Zoo series was inspired by the sense of wonder Adrian’s daughters display whenever they visit a regular zoo. It was also inspired by lots of chocolate. Adrian lives in Melbourne but is originally from Hobart . . . which could explain a few things.
