Age when you started singing
I actually can’t remember not singing in my life. I was about six years old when I started off as a very self-conscious boy soprano.
It is constantly changing. I will always have a soft spot for La Bohème though. It was the first opera I performed in as part of the Opera Australia children’s chorus and the music gets me right in the heart every time. I would love to sing Rodolfo one day.
Favourite opera role to perform
Of the roles I’ve performed, I think Tamino from The Magic Flute is my all-time favourite. He is such a great character, very heroic but vulnerable, confused and full of yearning.
A fun fact not many people know about you
I completed half of a bread and pastry making qualification a few years ago. I had to withdraw because it was difficult to balance with my singing commitments, but I guess you could still call me a Half-Pastry-Chef.

“… a tenor voice to die for – pure, immediate, unforced, utterly reliable.”
