Born in Sydney but moved to Perth when I was 11. Started playing piano at age 7 and became passionate about jazz at about age 13 after watching Herbie Hancock play. Started learning jazz piano and went to WAAPA to study it. I graduated in 2013 and am back doing honours this year! I just want to play as much as I can for a living: nothing better than playing the greatest music ever conceived every day for the rest of your life…
My mum (Meri Fatin) is a regular around the station and so I was exposed to it through her. She offered to put me through the training course as a Christmas present and I really enjoyed it so I decided to try and really get involved!
Five is so not enough! These are all classic (or near classic) albums that I couldn’t go without
Keeping up with all the newest jazz and meeting heaps of really interesting and cool people around the traps
Not a lot…pretty new so far! I’m sure after doing the early morning shows long enough I’ll have my fair share of stories though!
Soul Sides…such great music and always heaps of fun to listen to!
Play/teach/study jazz. Maybe a bit one-dimensional but I wouldn’t want to do anything else
