Originally from Ballarat, Victoria, Tobias worked for ten years as a performer, touring Australia and New Zealand with musicals such as Mary Poppins, CATS, and Guys and Dolls. In recent times, he rekindled his childhood passion for writing and shifted his attention to the world of publishing. (It seemed like really great idea at the time to move from one industry fraught with rejection to another industry that is equally, if not more, fraught with rejection.)
Underdog is Tobias’s first commercial undertaking as an editor, and he hopes that what started out as a humble idea will grow into something much bigger: a platform for unpublished #LoveOzYA writers to showcase their work and have their voices heard.
Tobias currently works in publishing as a Digital Marketing Executive and YA Publicist.
