I was born in Perth Australia, my family moved to Adelaide and later Melbourne. I studied art there and received a degree with a double major in drawing and painting.
Gradually I took an interest in the moving image and specialized in creating and animating special effects. I moved into Art Direction and relocated to London. I worked for large film studios and production houses as a Technical Director on movies such as Harry Potter and Batman Begins. My film bio is here. I enjoy this huge imaginary world where anything is possible and the production is grand. However it’s a world of collaboration and I needed to pursue my own images. So now thats what I do.
I have exhibited in Australia, The United Kingdom, Europe and the USA. I still live in London where I have my studio.
