Svargo's first career was in teaching. Beginning in the UK he later moved to Hamburg, where he took a teaching post in a German High School.

He very much enjoyed working with children. During this period he realised how important it was to create a fun relaxed atmosphere.

This understanding has had a major influence on the structure and content of Svargo's Mime Teaching DVD.

While in Germany Svargo discovered his passion for mime which led him to attend mime schools firstly in Hamburg and later in Berlin.

After studying, Svargo began teaching mime in Berlin. During this time he met an Australian actor who worked in Schools in Australia.

It was this chance meeting that shortly afterwards saw Svargo on his way to Australia. He has since been performing to enthusiastic audiences throughout Australia and New Zealand.
