Personal Interests:


Photography, Film, Music, Visual Design, Architecture, Structure

Majored in photography at art school, with a strong focus on composition and shape.  Together with my fascination of sculpture and mixed media, and the inspiration I get from the scale and form of architecture, I have produced a number of Installation works.

Film is my other passion in life.  I enjoy all types of movies but have become particularly interested in the use of shape, colour, light, composition and music to create and affect the overall visual experience.




Proficient in the use of power tools and building materials.

Full Drivers License and thorough knowledge of Wellington, Auckland, Southland and surrounding regions.
