New South Wales

Age: 27

Occupation: Systems Engineer

Growing up in Sydney’s west with his parents and older sister Melissa, Trent is passionate about health and fitness and enjoys playing sport on the weekends and working out at the gym.

A baseball fanatic, Trent admits his competitive streak is often prevalent in the dug-out and he hopes that drive and passion to win will help him in the MasterChef Australia kitchen.

A largely self-taught cook, Trent routinely watches online videos and cooking shows to perfect his craft and admires cooks and chefs such as Adriano Zumbo, Luke Nguyen, Matt Moran, Curtis Stone and Peter Gilmore.

Having reached a crossroads in his life after nearly seven years as a systems engineer, Trent is determined to throw himself into his MasterChef Australia experience with gusto, ready for it to be the catalyst to re-shape his future. Trent’s food dream is one that will inspire all food and beach lovers. He hopes to own and operate a food truck which will travel from beach to beach, all the while sharing his love and passion for food.

Describing his food style as modern Australian with an emphasis on Italian cuisine, it was when Trent moved out of home three years ago that he turned his hobby for food into a significant passion. He admits his mess in the kitchen may lead to a terse word from judges Matt, Gary or George this season, but he hopes to win them over and soak up as much knowledge as possible.
