He has an extensive range of experience in performing on stage as a solo MC and with former group TDB and also an actor for Film & theatre productions.

He is one of the best all round performers in the entertainment industry taking the nation by storm labelled as the next big thing he strives to achieve nothing but the best pushing himself every day to the limits to perfect his craft and be the best entertainer he can be.

Music and film was not always his number one love as a child he grew up playing Aussie Rules Football all through school he was involved in sports from Basketball, Cricket, Rugby, and Boxing and even enjoyed his athletics with the 100 metre sprint being his main event. But there was one sport you just could not drag him away from one sport which had his total love and dedication and that was Aussie Rules Football.
He started playing Aussie Rules Football at the age of 5 years old with younger brother Yarba Nettle in his home town of Perth, Western Australia. The Family moved away from Perth in 1991 to start a new life in Adelaide, South Australia he was 9 years of age at the time they moved, it was there at Paralowie R-12 school which was a school that was both primary and high school which would later be the place that connected him with his love of music and film .

Growing up he was a natural athlete every sport he played he was just naturally very good at it even if he didn’t know how to play the sport at first he would somehow turn out better than the person teaching him how to play the game. He was a fast learner a perfectionist and when it came to Aussie Rules Footy he was one of the best going around at the time throughout high school some even thought he would go on to play AFL at the highest level, he played for his beloved Salisbury North Hawks all through his teenage years then winning such awards like best and fairest 3 times which was the highest award you could receive with in the club going on to play at Port Adelaide Magpies and Central District Bulldogs under 17 teams. Stinga‘s dedication was on point when his friends would go out and party he would be at home perfecting his craft didn’t drink didn’t smoke or do any drugs didn’t even do any criminal activity as a teenager for stinga he wanted a whole lot more out of his life he didn’t want to be like some of his mates doing the wrong things.
Stinga was often describe as having tunnel vision while he was succeeding at sport his education was going downhill, not giving the same attention to his studies that he did with his sport. Teachers would often be on his back all the time about it , he started to become distractive not going to class, shouting at teachers messing around with his mates in class even got to the point where he almost got kicked out of his high school. At that point you didn’t need to tell him twice he knew being thrown out of his school he would have to start all over again at another school, from that point he choose to knuckle down and finish high school.
In 1997 he saw his younger cousin Michael Collard performing a hip hop song to the Japanese exchange students from that moment he thought to himself wow this would be an awesome thing to be able to do. So he started learning how to write and rap and sing songs, for two years on and off he even did vocals lessons with mentor Ken Elliot attending the sessions every Monday along his his brother Yarba and cousin Michael when the singing lessons stopped due to Ken’s work load increasing. Meanwhile at high school he had just been placed into the Drama cour
