By day I design and direct online advertising campaigns. Working in this field for 20 years I've led many award winning projects across creative direction, design, video production and interactive development for a range of clients including; Nike, Mercedes-Benz, Holden, Samsung, National Geographic, WNYC and Converse.
For the past 5 years I have worked in New York City. Beginning at R/GA, in this role I led the award winning Nike Speed Drops super bowl campaign along with brand spots for Samsung and Mercedes-Benz. I then stepped into the publisher industry on branded content at RYOT (Verizon Media) and am now currently working at boutique agency Mod Op. Prior to this I spent 8 years at Isobar (Visual Jazz) in Melbourne, one of Australia's leading digital agencies.
Away from agency life I maintain a number of independent projects. Several years working within the UK and Australian music industry ignited a long term passion to discover, document and elevate the experience of quality live music. Artist collaborators include Bear's Den, Nick Mulvey, Laura Marling, Julia Jacklin, First Aid Kit, Nathaniel Rateliff, The Staves and Kimbra.
In 2010 I co-founded the music video series Sideshow Alley. Collaborating with a handful of talented film makers, photographers and sound engineers, this ongoing project has captured over 40 performing artists around Melbourne and NYC.
Between 2012-2014 I curated over 50 local and international artists together with Communion Music, handling live promotion for their popular club night in Melbourne.
Whether on set or on stage, I often supplement my role with a camera in hand. Armed with a diploma of photography I’ve captured both artistic and commercial experiences with images published in Rolling Stone, PDN, Wall St Journal, NME, Pitchfork, Billboard, Teen Vogue, The Age and New York Times. Recent commercial clients include Mercedes-Benz, Nike, Four Seasons and Baha Mar.
Between 2012-2019 I spent much time around the globe as a tour photographer for Mumford & Sons. During this time I regularly wandered the world's greatest music festivals including Glastonbury, Newport Folk, Eaux Claires, Laneway, Fuji Rock, Latitude, Glastonbury, Boston Calling and Meredith Music Festival equal parts a punter and staff photographer. Along the way I’ve photographed for other artists including; Arcade Fire, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Ben Howard and Bon Iver.
In 2019 I spent a month on set documenting Kitty Green’s feature film The Assistant starring Julia Garner.
