When did you decide to be a dancer?
I got into ballet at the age of seven but I don't think I knew I wanted to do it as a living until the age of about 16 when I made the big move from Brisbane to Melbourne to attend The Australian Ballet School. As The Australian Ballet is attached to the School I got a sneak preview of what it is like to be a professional ballet dancer – and I liked what I saw.

What's been your most memorable performance to date?
I would have to say the entire Jiri season when I performed in Petite Mort, Stepping Stones and Forgotten Land. It was just such a privilege to dance in these amazing works.

Hit us with your favourite book, film and album.
My favourite book would definitely have to be As I Lay Dying by William Faulkner. It's very hard for me to decide on just one particular film, but I'd have to say Dead Man starring Johnny Depp and directed by Jim Jarmusch (who is also my favourite director), and my favourite album is Almond by Aaron Martin.
