Dr Rhythm … co host of ABC3’s children’s show ‘What do you know?’, hero role in a string of Peters Ice Cream commercials on Channel [V], stand out act on Australia’s Got Talent 2008, London Beat Box Champ 2006, the token clown in theatre shows with Raw Dance Company on 42nd st and internationally, multi award winning street performer, versatile voice over artist and energetic festival and stage MC.
Dr Rhythm has a reputation for being the man that can and will do anything - so trying to pigeonhole exactly what he can do is tricky, because he does it all! He blazes any stage or event, with hype to last for days. As a kid he began copying sound effects from his favourite Transformer cartoons and recreating drum sounds, and what could have been earlier diagnosed as Tourettes or ADHD, was actually just a Beat Boxer in the making.
The year 2013 saw his hero role and heavy creative involvement in the vocal commercial for Drumstick Ice Cream. He lead and worked with two similar musicians in these commercials which aired on Channel [V] and virally. Working alongside Publisis Mojo and Channel [V] was hands down the high light of his career to date. In 2011 Dr Rhythm worked alongside Ambience Entertainment, transforming him into the improvisational and legendary co-host of children's Television show “What Do You Know” on ABC3. After filming 65 episodes with the Doc they quoted him as “an outstanding performer who brings fresh, original and hilarious ideas to any project he works with”. This relationship with Ambience also lead to a guest appearance on kids game show ‘Pyramid’ alongside fellow comedic entertainer, David Collins from the Umbilical Brothers. His passion for television and presenting inspired him to taking part in a Presenting Course with ‘AFTRS’ lead by Tracey Spicer.
Quoted as Australia hardest working MC, Dr Rhythm has held audiences in the palm of his hands at; Summafeildayze, Woodford Folk Festival, Singapore Dance and Festival, Brisbane Festival, Wet N Wild, Parklife, Redbull Music Academy, Surfers Paradise Fringe festival and corporate affairs for world renowned brands such as Telstra, Westfield, Virgin Mobile and Footlocker.
The National Marketing Manager for Redbull refers to the Doc as “our go to guy for hosting all of our national events.” At one particular Redbull event, Hip Hop Legend Rahzel quoted Dr Rhythm as “The man in charge, when the ‘Godfather of Noise’ (Rahzel himself) is not visiting Australia”
Jack Beats requested the Doc’s MCing skills at Summerfeildaze 2012 and he’s performed alongside and introduced the likes of De LA Soul, Raekwon, N*E*R*D, The Living End, The Stafford Brother’s, John Butler Trio, The Living End, Z-Trip, A-Trak, Danny T, Sampology and The Faders. The list goes on, and this just demonstrates his musical versatility and why he’s in high demand. As an experienced entertainer he can keep people in their seats or make them go crazy on the dance floor.
