Growing up in Perth, Jared fell in love with music theatre at an early age. Some of Jared’s early credits include Oliver, My Fair Lady, Guys and Dolls, Sweet Charity and Les Miserables.

Jared began his professional music theatre career in 2007 as part of the tribe in Hair: The American Tribal Love – Rock Musical. Later that year he performed the role of Steve in Rent.
In 2008, Jared moved to Victoria to attend the University of Ballarat, to study Music Theatre. During his time in Ballarat, Jared had the opportunity to play Homer Collins in Adam Guettel’s Floyd Collins, Joseph ‘Jojo’ Morse in Cy Coleman’s The Life and Muzzy’s Boy/Ensemble in Thoroughly Modern Millie. His highlight was the chance to play the role of Bobby Strong in Urinetown, under the direction of Tom Healey.

After graduating in 2010, Jared was cast in the Australasian Premiere season of It’s Only Life. He worked closely with the show’s composer, John Bucchino, who also accompanied the piece. In early 2011 Jared played the role of David in the concert version of Milk and Honey, as part of their Jerry Herman Triptych. This year marks Jared’s 7th year touring with The TEN Tenors, and each year has been better than the last.
