He won numerous talent quests and Country Music Festivals including Senior Male Vocal for the 2011 Queensland Champion of Champions. He is the founder and an organiser of the Boyne Valley Country Music Campout – an annual festival that celebrates music and the Australian way of life, and is booked to capacity each year.
In October 2017 he released his first album titled “The song you sing” featuring nine original songs, followed by an Afrikaans EP “Ek wil sing” in August 2018. He is currently working on his second album to be released early next year.
