What’s your link to Townsville?
I was born and raised in Townsville and went to Townsville State High School.
Where are you now?
I play bass in Brisbane band Osaka Punch. At the moment, we’re on tour with The Butterfly Effect. I’m the only band member from Townsville but two of the members are from Innisfail. We’re a bit of a multi-genre band, so we play a mix of funk/rock/metal/soul/pop. I also work as a mental health nurse when we’re not touring. I live in Jamboree Heights, which is a bit out of the city, so it’s quiet – which I like.
How did your time in Townsville set you up for success?
It gave me the chance to play music with some great musicians, such as Gemma Bauman, Andrew Elliott and Will Evans to name a few, and I had lots of support from my family.
Do you still come ‘home’ to Townsville to visit?
Yes, I love coming home to visit my family and friends. My sister just had a baby too, so I try to come back as much as I can.
