After failing to make any sports team at high school, I was instead allowed to take a photography course outside of school, and in doing so, saved myself from the boredom of netball.
Here my passion for documentary photography developed, which led me to enrol in and complete a Bachelor of Photojournalism at Griffith Universityâ€™s, Queensland College of Art.
Upon finishing my degree, I was invited by UK war photographer, Tim Page, to accompany him on a photographic journey to Cambodia where we would document an EU initiative, the Peace Art Project Cambodia (PAPC): Turning Weapons into Art. The sums of our efforts resulted in two exhibitions and an appearance on ABCâ€™s the 7:30 Report.
In 2005 I began working as a staff photographer at the Courier Mail newspaper. I specialized in Features and Music Photography and in 2006, I was nominated by Capture Magazine as one of Australiaâ€™s Top Eight Rock Photographers.
2007 led me to France where I photographed James Packer and Erica Baxterâ€™s Wedding for the Sydney Morning Herald.
I am currently working on several personal projects, and, still remain no good at sport.
