What does being an Aussie mean to you?

Staying honest, true and real. Especially here in Hollywood.

Where did you grow up and what was it like?

On the Gold Coast. It was a sunny, mellow childhood. Lots of competitive swimming, junior surf, life-saving, and all around beach action.

What’s your approach to your everyday style?

Classic. Anything that I find could withstand the test of time and the winds of change. To exist outside the boundaries of current ‘trends’, and keep it timeless.

What kind of T-shirt wearer are you? 

Definitely the Crew Tee!

How do you like to wear your staple tees? 

Tucked into jeans with the sleeves rolled.

What do you look for in a T-shirt?

Well-fitted with enough room in the shoulders to move about. Multi purpose tees.

What’s your secret style tip?

My secret style tip is you should never have a secret style tip.

What other Bonds items do you like?

The underwear and socks are my all time favourite. (Wearing them now).

What does a typical day look like for you?

It depends on the day, but for the most part: playing guitar, some kind of physical exercise, reading or writing, and the beach if it’s nice out!

What’s it like to be able to pursue your passion on a global scale?

It’s an honor above all. A privilege I will never overlook. To know I can create pieces of work that are received globally keeps me positive daily.

Finish these sentences…

I love being an Aussie because…

It keeps me grounded. And allows me an escape from the music industry, allowing me to go across the pond and stay low key whenever I please!

The thing I love most about the Aussie landscape is…

The diverse landscape of beach, hinterland, and desert.

The top three songs on my playlist right now are…

May This Be Love – Jimi Hendrix Experience
Moon Dawg – The Beach Boys
Astral Weeks – Van Morrison

This summer I’ll be wearing…

Tees, jeans, and boots.

My favourite thing about working with Bonds is…

Makes me feel close to home. And it’s a privilege to be working with such a classic Aussie brand that I grew up with.

My favourite Bonds Tee is…

The classic white Crew Tee.
