Photographer & Art Director
About

These days I find myself wearing a lot of hats. I love how variety of passion builds stories & inspires new challenges across disciplines.

Interactive Art Director


By day I design and direct online advertising campaigns and platforms. Working in this field for 12 years I've lead many successful projects across development, production, design and direction for a range of clients including; Holden, Jetstar, Reach Foundation, Jay Jays, MAMA Group, Westnet and Melbourne University.

Over the past 6 years I've loved working with some of my closest friends at Isobar Australia (Visual Jazz), one of Australia's leading and most awarded digital agencies.

Photographer


Away from agency life I maintain a number of independent music related projects. Several years working within the UK music industry ignited a long term passion to discover, document and elevate the experience of quality live music.

Armed with a Diploma of Photography I'm often found wandering around the world's greatest music festivals capturing the event spirit. For the past 2 years I have been a staff photographer for Meredith Music Festival & Golden Plains. Other festivals shot include; Laneway Festival, Fuji Rock, Latitude Festival and Glastonbury. Recent clients include Mumford & Sons and Communion.

Music Director & Music Curator


In 2010, together with Dave Budge & Selwyn Cozens I started the music video project Sideshow Alley. Collaborating with a handful of talented film makers, photographers and sound engineers, the project is all about capturing performing artists in the alleyways of Melbourne and on the rooftops of New York City.

Recently I've established the Melbourne post of Communion; a live music night held monthly at The Toff In Town. Working with Communion co-founders Ben Lovett (Mumford & Sons) and Kev Jones (Bear's Den), the event has already showcased some of Australia's finest new talent.
