"I grew up in rural Australia surrounded by sheep, wheat and cattle. With a fondness for (mis)adventure and a fancy for creativity, my life now fits into a suitcase and I travel the globe savouring sweet moments and sharing the beauty of their lessons.
I’ve roasted marshmallows on molten lava in Guatemala, broken bread with locals in Arabia and dined on escargot at the world's most revered restaurants. I’ve had a tarantula on my face, a monkey on my back, and a dragon in my bed. I’ve danced with drunks on tabletops and meditated with monks on mountaintops. I’ve heard a jungle come alive and spoke to a man moments before he chose to die.
From orphanages in Asia to private yachts in the Mediterranean, circus jugglers to human smugglers, sporting elites to computer geeks, the black market to the red carpet - I’ve seen it all through my lens. With every click of the shutter I learn more of the world, become more myself, and realise that
this planet is an absolute playground.
It is my passion and privilege to help people see the world... differently."
