Jack was born and spent most of his childhood in Brisbane, but moved to Texas for a year when he was five, and France for year when he was ten. He first picked up a guitar at the age of 6 and when asked if he would like some lessons, confidently said, "no I can play it already." This proved not to be entirely true and Jack started taking lessons in primary school with classical guitarist Karin Schaupp.
After high school Jack studied a bachelor of arts at The University of Queensland, majoring in writing. Upon graduating, he moved to Sydney to further his acting career, landing some guest roles in film and television. It was at this time he decided it was time to pick up the guitar again and began taking lessons from Jean Pierre Antaki. In 2014 he decided he was in need of some acting training, so he auditioned, and was accepted into an acting school in Melbourne, where he currently resides.
Jack continues advanced studies with Jean Pierre via Skype and is teaching for The Academy in Melbourne, predominantly in Kensington, Footscray, Flemington, Ascot Vale, North Melbourne and the Melbourne CBD.
