In 2005 after having played in the Lakes & Craters Band Camperdown for several years I became the conductor at age 19, taking them in 2007 to the Australian National Band Championships & The Victorian State Championships, returning home as Victorian State Champions for our section.

In 2006 I made the finals of the Warrnambool Aria Competion and shared the Australian National Association of Teachers of Singing award at Royal South Street for someone best suited to a career in musical theatre. In 2007 I commenced a Bachelor of Music- Voice at the Melba Conservatorium studying under Peter Mander and that year I won the Ballarat Courier Ballad Contest at Royal South Street. Unfortunately the school was closed before I could finish my studies.

In June 2010 I moved to Canberra and for one & half years I played trombone for the ANU School of Music Orchestra. This Orchestra participated in the Canberra Festival Camerata in May 2011 and performed for the Australian premier of Schubert's 10th and 11th Symphonies.

2011 saw the culmination of two and half years of work when my brass quintet Diamond in the Rough was performed by Hawthorn A grade brass band. It also saw the release, in England, Canada and America, of a collaboratively composed jazz ballad, for which I was also the vocalist, called Cup of Happiness.

In 2012 I enrolled Part-Time in a Cert. III in Performance (Acting) at Canberra Academy of Dramatic Arts (CADA)

In 2013 I was cast as Lesgles in Canberra Philharmonic's production of Les Miserables, I also portrayed, Borsa in Rigoletto & a guard in Carmen for Canberra Opera's gala concert & in Far Musical's Production of, a new work, Stockholm The Musical I played the lead male role of Thomas Hartley.

2014 Saw the premier of 2 more of my works: Sunday a sonata for saxaphone with piano accompaniment, and, The Nightingale an art song adaption of my own poem. I had a paid, non-speaking, role in a re-enactment for ABC's Four Corners [Portrayed an ASIO officer raiding the house of East-Timor Lawyer Bernard Collaery]

I also completed my Certificate III in Performance (Acting) at CADA.

2015 - I composed a duet for trombones titled Cosmology which was performed from the balcony of the National Library as part of the Canberra International Music Festival. I entered my composition "Sunday" in the IBLA Grand Prize in Italy and received a score of 8.30 out of 10 and was presented with a certificate for Most Distinguished Musician & Special Mention. I realised the first sale of my completed Saxophone Sonata "Sunday" to Javier Oviedo who runs the Classical Saxophone Project in New York. I also commenced playing trombone/percussion with Hawthorn A Grade Brass Band, playing at the National & State Championships.

2016 - I commenced recording on an Audio Book for a respected Australian author (Cannot say more than that at present). I have just completed Music Directing a 17 piece orchestra for Red Door Theatre and Dance Company's production of Legally Blonde & presently rehearsing on trombone/percussion with Hawthorn Brass Band for the Bendigo Competition & the State Band Championships.
