Tash grew up in Wellington, but has been in Auckland for the past few years. He originally moved up to study Fine Arts.

Being on Shortland Street is his first big break in the acting world. 

Like his character Blue, Tash loves art and reading. He runs a gallery with his flatmates. 

"I really love the cast and crew I get to work with. Everyone is so passionate and has so much fun doing their job. It's a great environment to be in," says Tash. 

 Remembering his first day on location, Tash says it was really fun. He was a lot more nervous than he thought he'd be.
