- Growing up in Christchurch, he was always getting into trouble.
- He got pretty close to going down a certain path, which probably would've led to gangs, drugs, or prison.
- His parents saw that music put him in a better place, so they bought him a guitar to give him a creative outlet.
- He spent time working as a sound engineer for other bands, but he was always writing his own music on the side.
- Fronted the well-known New Zealand band Salmonella Dub for 11 years.
- Eventually, he decided to break away and work on his own music.
- His first solo album, Past, Present, Future, was the number-one album in New Zealand in 2007.
- Now he's gone back to his production roots; founded Tikidub Productions, where he acts as a producer, engineer, and artist.
