What do you do?

I’m a qualified PDHPE teacher with a degree in fitness training. I am also a cosplayer.

Where do you live?

I live in a nice little area not too far from the city, out West in the Hills Area of Sydney, New South Wales.

Any claim to fame?

Haha, it really depends what definition fame has to you I suppose. Im a geek, in a community of other geeks, who has been lucky enough to work with some awesome companies as a cosplayer. I do have a "fan" following and I’ve gotten to take part in some really cool opportunities. So I guess theres a unique kind of claim to fame there.

How do you express yourself?

This is probably most easily seen through my hobby in Cosplay (it’s a geek thing) where I get the chance to build Props, create costumes and practically change myself into a character. Whether I’m doing it for fun at a convention, for friends and fans or working for a company as a living advertisement, it’s simply me expressing myself through who I’ve become.

Does what you wear reflect your personality?

I think so… over time, I’ve picked up so many interests that they all seem to make their way into my wardrobe. I’m a fan of 50’s fashion, I love riding my skateboard, a big fan of comics/videogames and I love rock music. My fashion sense is pretty much a combination of all of these things.

What article of clothing can’t you live without?

Most probably my Ray Ban Wayfarers. I just love them and I think its important to find the best kind of shades that really feel comfortable on you. Mine are also prescription sunglasses, so they kind of help me see.

Got body art?

Yep, a half sleeve (soon to be full sleeve) oriental piece from Kaleidoscope Tattoo at Bondi.

What do you love about it?

I’m only interested in getting black and grey ink tattoos as I don’t think coloured tattoos would suit me. I always wanted one as a kid and can picture myself getting many more over time. I know it’s a great way to express yourself (I always loved Japanese art) but I’m also just a huge fan of how tattoos look on people.

Favourite Bar?

Cherry Bar in Melbourne.

Where are your favourite places to shop?

Roger David, Platypus, Antons (Melbourne).
