After graduating from high-school he travelled to New York to begin formal training in the performing arts. He returned to Australia to finish his tertiary tuition at Patrick Studios Australia, studying Musical Theatre under the direction of Andrew Hallsworth.
Jackson made his professional musical theatre debut in the original Australian production of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in 2019 and re-joined the production for the 2021 tour. Jackson’s other recent credits include the Untitled Baz Luhrmann film based on the life of Elvis Presley due for release by Warner Brothers in 2022 and the role of Stormtrooper in Altitude Theatre’s The Producers at Brisbane Powerhouse.
