I completed Year 12 in 2002 where I achieved the Dux of TEE Music. I was accepted at W.A.A.P.A to complete a Bachelor of Music – Performance in 2003 but decided to join the Australian Army as a Musician in the Band Corps. I served 4 years of full-time service moving from Melbourne to Wagga Wagga.

Additionally, I achieved the Senior Instructors Award for Highest Musical Excellance at the Defence Force School of Music in 2004. I have received excellant tuition ranging from professors from Melbourne University and the Victorian College of the Arts, Australian National University in Canberra and professors at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music in Sydney.

Whilst in the Australian Army I have performed a number of professional shows alongside professional musicians; Guy Sebastian, Marina Prior, Tom Burlinson, Rhonda Burchmore and James Morrisson at a number of prestigious venues including The Sydney Opera House.

My performance history is extensive, some of which include performing at the Melbourne Commonwealth Games in 2005, official CD Recordings of the Australian Army Band, performing at the AFL Grand Final in 2005 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, performing at NRL games in 2009, 2010 and 2011 at the Sydney Football Stadium and at movie premieres at Fox Studios in Sydney.

I have worked on WICKED! auditions, Calendar Girls auditions, Peer Group Media – Brag, Drum Media and The Music Network, and have worked as Orchestral Manager for 2 seasons for the Metropolitan Chamber Orchestra in Sydney.

My knowledge in every field of music is extensive and I have alot of experince that would benefit any student.
