Where were you born?
Cirencester, England.

Where did you train?
The Australian Ballet School, where I danced Sancho Panza in Don Quixote (Australian Ballet) and Puss in Boots in Stanton Welsh's The Sleeping Beauty.

When did you join Scottish Ballet?

Why did you become a dancer?
I started to take ballet classes after seeing Angel Corella perform as a guest in Trilogy with the Australian Ballet. He did a pirouette that accidentally finished to the back on balance, turned his head to the audience and raised an eyebrow at us. The crowd went crazy! Ever since then I've wanted to dance just like him, with that same connection with audiences.
