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 15 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 7 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 co-founded the music video production collective Sideshow Alley. Collaborating with a handful of talented film makers, photographers and sound engineers, the project captures performing artists in the alleyways of Melbourne and on the rooftops of New York City.

In 2014 I produced and edited the film feature music documentary 'Austin to Boston' which screened at the BFI London Film Festival & IDFA in Amsterdam along with many other film festivals.

Working with co-founders Ben Lovett (Mumford & Sons) and Kev Jones (Bear's Den) I also handle live music duties for Communion Music in Melbourne. This includes showcasing over 50 artists at the Melbourne club night.
