Self tape time! 🎬 Had an amazing opportunity to submit a self tape for a hit Australian TV show. Now I can’t disclose any more information but I’m super grateful for the opportunity. Regardless if I get a call back or not, this is a very positive step for me & I’m thankful. For seasoned actors this may be a regular thing but for me, this feels like a monumental shift closer towards living my purpose. (Empowering the world through storytelling) 💫 Within a year of acting I’ve already hit some cool milestones & feel like I’m just getting started. Always learning, always growing & forever evolving. Thanks to my bro @goodall1 for the amazing advice & @tushmo for killin it off camera ❤️🎬💯💯
So stoked with my latest headshots! Love this one as I feel it captures my true essence. I’m like Kendrick says, an anti-social extrovert. Definitely a deep thinker & always look as though I’m so serious. However once you get to know me, you realise I’m just a geek who would rather work on creative projects, eat chocolate & then balance it out with a workout 🙈☺️😂
One of my latest headshots from my most recent shoot. Wanted these to look professional yet still be authentic. For this reason we added only minor colour correction with zero blemish removal or skin correction. No make-up used because let’s face it, you’re worth it! 😂🙏🏽💯💯
Played 2 characters in a creepy scene! 🎬 Swipe left to try work out the story. If you wanna watch the full clip, the links in my bio! ☝🏽 The idea of this scene was to showcase versatility with my look, accent & acting abilities. What started out as a reel scene ended up as a short film. It’s a bit of a dark creepy vibe so make sure it’s quiet when you watch. Let me know what you think 💭
Dropping #truth in my latest single Perfect! I’ve noticed that nowadays people barely talk honestly about mental health, instead they’ll share a generic post or do a push-up challenge thinking they’ve played their part. We have huge Hiphop artists out there (some with more power than politicians) portraying themselves as sex objects & talking about booty and alcohol. At what point do the theatrics end & we get back to the art form. Together let’s change the world one listen at a time. You never know, your voice might reach someone at a time where they need it most, and potentially save a life. If you’re serious about social change, have a listen & follow my lead. Link in bio! 🎬💯💯
My new single Perfect is here! Link is in bio 🙏🏽 Thankyou so much to everyone involved.

Under one year acting and already been involved in so many groovy projects with amazing people. Creativity is what sets my soul on fire, without it, my demons would shallow me whole. For this reason I choose to stay positive & grateful 💯💯
