“Some of my earliest memories are filled with music. Singing along to Bohemian Rhapsody with a kettle lead for a mic when I was five to learning the bass guitar so I could be the next Mark King, I love all kinds of music and always felt the need to sing or play along with whatever instrument I liked the sound of. I also loved to draw and paint instead of watching the footy with my brothers. I now consider myself lucky that my graphic design, photography and singing careers all come from things I loved doing as a kid.
Being on Stars in Their Eyes was a surreal and frightening experience considering I wasn’t a singer and that I never even entered myself in for it in the first place. My daft karaoke rendition of Bowie’s China Girl had my friends thinking it was good enough to get me on the biggest TV show at the time. I nervously pursued it and did better than I ever thought by winning my show. I also had the chance to sing one of my favourite songs by one of my favourite singers. That show changed my life and the overwhelming reaction from audiences helps me to continue on.”
