I am super blessed to have the friends and family I do who are supportive and love me. I find that in this space you need to have people that are in your corner but also people that will bring you back down to earth and keep you from getting lost in the sauce.
On SEXUAL FLUIDITY
I am hugely attracted to people’s personalities and energy and I feel people put way too much emphasis on putting people in their boxes or being worried about someone else’s opinion. If you are curious about something or want to try a different flavor of fruit, do it. It’s better to know than to live a life of curiosity and being scared. It’s 2022 and life is short to not enjoy it to the fullest. Live and let live.
I am a very spiritual person and believe in the power of manifestation. It’s part of my daily life and I feel it’s important to have that faith in something and to each their own.
On GENDER EQUALITY
It’s about damn time, don’t you think? I have been gifted with amazing, strong women around me in both my personal and work life. I am in awe of what they can accomplish and still have such a large capacity to nurture and support. The faster we learn as a society to respect everyone equally, the better off we will be.
On SOCIAL MEDIA
No doubt that social media is part of my daily routine. I am super blessed to be in the position I’m in with such an amazing audience. Social media has many pro’s and cons but everyday that I get up and get to do what I do, I am extremely blessed and grateful.
On IMPORTANCE OF PERSONAL STYLE
I think it’s important to take some time and wear something you love because when you feel like you look good, you feel good and your energy is going to be high and give off that energy to the world around you.
Tell us more about your move to Los Angeles from Australia. What was the most challenging part of it?
The most challenging part about moving across the world is how big and scary it sounds in your head. As soon as I realized LA was one flight away from Australia, everything seemed so much easier. Obviously organizing a work visa & getting familiar with the land was a bit of a speed bump, but when you just put your mind to doing something there shouldn’t be anything that stops you. Life is way too short to put up the mental stop signs. Book the flight and figure the rest out later.
At what moment did you realize you wanted to pursue a career in entertainment? Explain.
Well, it all started when I was studying at university, I was doing a double degree in Art & Business, which I hated. I never enjoyed people telling me how to think or what to do, I’d prefer to get out there and figure it out myself. Coming up-to my final exams for the year, I got the devastating news of someone very close to me unfortunately committed suicide. This started an incredible self-reflection process, where I looked deep inside myself and asked myself the question if I was truly happy and if I wanted to do this forever, the answer was no.
Coincidently, around this time one of my friends had tagged me in a post on Facebook that was to apply for this new dating show, as if the universe wanted to show me what I’m destined to do. I applied for the show and immediately got a call from the producers and they wanted me on. I knew that this wasn’t a mistake, I made it my mission to go on this show and make people laugh, whether it’s with me or at me, I just wanted to bring some joy to my friends. Funnily enough, I manifested my way into winning this show and making people laugh.
At that point, I knew that my destiny was to entertain and make my friends laugh. And following that show, I was blessed with the opportunity to be on one of Netflix’s first reality shows and make a whole bunch more people laugh. Now, after losing more loved ones to suicide my path couldn’t be more clear.
If anyone is reading this and going through something, please reach out to someone around you because I promise you are loved & the world will be missing a star without you.
Define what “success” means to you.
I feel like there are so many approaches to success. For me, success would mean that I’ve created something beneficial and impactful to the world, whether that is a company that helps the environment or a production company that entertains people. On top of that, happiness & making sure everyone around me has been taken care of.
What are some projects you worked on that had a strong impact on you? Explain.
I think the obvious one would have to be Too Hot To Handle, it was the most life-changing experience. From working with an amazing team/production to lifelong lessons and manifesting my own future. When we were filming that show, I was unintentionally manifesting my life with things I was saying and doing. It took me a year or so after to realize how my thoughts created my future. Another amazing opportunity that has a strong impact on me was a pilot show we filmed recently, where I was the host of the show and it gave me more of a look behind the curtains of how a show operates. The reason why I feel like this has had a strong impact on me, is because it gave me a chance to work behind the camera as well as in front of it. Being a host and producer was something I didn’t think I’d be able to say I could do, but this opportunity really kicked that door down and made me excited to take more of a professional approach to reality tv instead of being a contestant on show after show.
Growing up, if someone told you that you would be in Los Angeles releasing content, videos (etc)…Would you have believed it?
No, not at all! I thought my path was to grow up, go to university and then come back to my hometown and take over the family business. I don’t think anyone could have predicted this, this has been the most incredible journey and I’ve been incredibly blessed to even be in the position I’m in.
Describe your relationship with fashion.
I’ve always had a funny relationship with fashion, if you look at my older photos I was a big skinny jeans and sneaker kind of guy but I’ve realized that doesn’t float too well. Over the past year, I’ve taken how I present myself a little more seriously. With fashion, there are so many things you can touch on, but for myself, I find when I get new clothes or a cool outfit my confidence goes through the roof. There are a lot of benefits to having a great fashion sense. I’m still trying to figure it out but I think the biggest thing is just getting clothes you feel comfortable and confident in, don’t be afraid to try something different, you can always return it.
How is 2022 looking so far? What comes next?
This year I reset my goals and intentions, I want to put myself in uncomfortable positions because that is where growth happens, and give back more to my community and people close to me. This year myself and my team made a plan to do a tv/movie appearance every month. To be honest we are on track & some months doing a little more than just that which is super exciting. It’s been an amazing year so far, creating content that entertains my audience always fills my cup.
My podcast has been doing amazing this year. We are looking at building a new studio out, as well as getting more guest’s on to help share their story. On top of that we just picked up a show on Spotify which is super exciting, it is all about dating, sex & everything in-between, it also gives an opportunity for listeners to come on stage and speak with me, which I couldn’t be more thrilled about.
My team and I are also planning on investing upwards of $10 million into startups and various businesses which also fuels my passion.
