If you could have any super power, what would it be?
I would have complete control over time - this would enable to me to experience so many moments and learn so many cool things!
Aside from Soulstice, what do you do with your life?
I study computer science (just your typical nerd), train for track (athletics) with the UQ team, and hang out with friend in the ample free time that uni gives me.
What are your major influences/sources of inspiration?
People who are passionate. About anything. The spark you see in someone's eye when they're thinking about what they love is more than enough inspiration. And of course my amazing and supportive parents and friends!
What is your musical background and how long have you been singing?
I played piano for a decade or so, starting when I was 9, and then I became a choir boy at the age of 12 and sang "proper music" for eight years. I always loved a cappella though, and I did a year of that back in the states, took voice lessons, and then came to Brisbane where I have the privilege of singing with these wonderful people :)
What music do you listen to?
Ariana Grande, Bruno Mars, Usher, Rascal Flatts, Ed Sheeran, Jason Derulo, Kesha, and of course cover artists Pentatonix, Straight No Chaser, Home Free, and Sam Tsui.
What is your guilty pleasure?
Musically? Kesha. Guilty because it's so trashy. But vicariously, that trashiness is so fun!
Team Edward or Team Jacob?
Definitely Team Jacob. After looking up each person, I'm going with Taylor Lautner. He seems like a nice and humble guy and he's a high-level martial artist, so that's pretty sweet.
Which would you rather wear for a month: bright green crocs or a “<3 Justin Bieber 4 Glee” badge on your chest?
I already wear toe shoes most of the time... does that count? I'd have to choose the badge so I could continue to wear my comfy toe shoes :)
