Style: BREAKDANCING / HIP HOP
HOMETOWN: Mt Druitt, NSW
DANCING SINCE: 10 years old
OCCUPATION: Thermo Climatic Engineer (i.e. cool way of saying Aircon Technician)
WHO INSPIRED YOU TO FIRST DANCE? Old school Bboys, and they always will!
EARLIEST MEMORY OF DANCING: Sidestepping and clicking during pre-school and winning a trophy for it.
IF WEREN’T A DANCER… I’d be at home playing PS3, eating rice or playing basketball.
WHERE WE’VE SEEN YOU? I was in SYTYCD Australia Season 1 (Top 50) and Season 2 (Top 40).
CRAZIEST JOB YOU’VE DONE? Suprisingly air-cons don’t really get crazy, but I have performed in front of 10,000 women before!
RELATIONSHIP STATUS: In a relationship with my beautiful girlfriend Brooke since July 2000. She’s a dancer too.
FAVOURITE BANDS/ARTISTS TO LISTEN TO? The Bamboos, Method Man, Redman and local funk bands.
WHAT STYLE DO YOU HOPE TO PICK OUT OF THE HAT? Latin or hip hop
HOW MUCH DANCE TRAINING HAVE YOU HAD, AND IN WHAT STYLES? I’ve never really done any dance training aside from my own. I regularly do hip hop classes and lately have been doing Jazz and Contemporary classes to improve my technique.
WHO IS YOUR FAVOURITE PROFESSIONAL DANCER? I would have to say Gene Kelly for genres other than my own and Bboy Remind from SEC (USA) when it comes to Bboying. Also Kelly Abbey, watching her dance makes the hair on your neck stand up, but at the same time, watching and listening to her teach can make even a bald dude’s hair grow in an instant!
WHAT DO YOU THINK WILL BE YOUR STRENGTHS IN THE COMPETITION? My strengths in the competition would be my showmanship and my strange ability to attract people when I dance. I don’t know what it is, but apparently people love to watch me dance, and that in itself gives me more motivation to be comfortable when I get on stage.
