About me

I was born in Christchurch, New Zealand. My childhood was spent at the beach and exploring the wilderness around that wild and woolly land. The outdoors inspired, and I aspired in art to be great. I painted from a young age, and exhibited, these were formative years. I grew up to be a competitve runner and cyclist, and that competitive spirit bolstered my ambition in the realm of the commercial arts. I studied and majored in graphic design and printmaking, and continued to develop drawing techniques and the belief in crafted visual communication. My career started in small advertising firms, and subsequently I worked as a designer illustrator and animator for a children's television production. Later, I worked independently in Wellington, NZ for a few years. This developed my experience in the business of design, I learned a few tricks and such to say the least. Since 2008 I've continued working collaboratively in London, UK. I've worked on a variety of projects, big and small for agencies vast and not so vast. I continue to seek inspiration from and for my work, and enjoy constructive criticism of visual communications projects in general.
