24 years ago my life began. I was pretty stoked to a part of the world. It seemed like a cool place to be.
Since then I’ve had a lot of fun and enjoyed many great memories though endured some pretty awful ones too.
In my early teens I began to battle a severe anxiety disorder and later depression. It sucked. The appearance of acne at 16 certainly didn’t help the situation…
I dropped out of school and journeyed to some extremely dark places; places I’d travel back and forth from for many years. Stability in my life became a distant dream as my family endured much struggle and heartache.
Through God’s strength and grace I was able to endure this dark and uncertain period and come out the other side a stronger, wiser and more focused young man.
In 2013 I became a speaker and ambassador for the Australian depression and anxiety initiative beyondblue which sees me speak at schools, community events and corporate fundraisers to audiences.
In 2014 I was able to realise my dream of making my racing car debut at Donington Park in England in September; a dream that I’d held unto having had my burgeoning go-karting career derailed amidst the chaos that were the years preceding.
Last year, having returned from one final stint living in London, I relocated from my family home in Brisbane to Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs. Here I have began tertiary studies in Business and Marketing and took my first tentative steps into the world of film and TV.
I seek to continue to spread my message of love, hope and passion whilst finding new ways in which to take these messages to the world. Will that see continued and expanded endeavours as an actor? Or perhaps new entrepreneurial pursuits and the launch of an exciting brand or three? Or maybe just more exciting blogs?
Or maybe all of the above! Who knows?!
But what I do know for sure is that I’m super excited to have you on-board for the ride.
