Born and raised in Adelaide, Connor has always been an entertainer. Extraverted and confident, Connor loved to sing, dance and act as a young boy, but didn’t find the deeper connections that brought him to drama till later in his adolescence. Growing up in a house of Mental Health Practitioners, Connor naturally found human nature intriguing.
Connor decided to enter his High-School’s Selective Entry Performing Arts Program so he could be in his crush’s dance classes. Little did he know, this would turn out to be the best decision of his life, as this led him to truly delve into the performing arts. Training in dance, drama and music, he became a competent triple threat.
Connor went on to successfully audition for multiple tertiary level dance and drama courses but ultimately chose the Bachelor of Creative Arts (Drama) at Flinders University Drama Centre with credits in Psychology.
Knowing deep down NIDA was his dream, after completing the first year of his bachelor’s degree, Connor found a new confidence in his honed ability and decided to audition for NIDA. Successful, he moved to the big smoke, Sydney.
Connor is armed and ready to take on the industry. With a love of physical embodied work and the deeper mental understandings of human emotion, Connor is strong willed, unorthodox and determined to use his voice to become a powerful artist.
