After four years of study and jumping into work in a variety of finance and sales roles in my early 20’s, it wasn’t long until a call for change and adventure presented itself to me. Taking the leap out of my secure working life and onto a less predictable path, I have led myself on a journey that has challenged me more than I ever thought possible. After four years making pictures, traveling around the world for both work and play, and spending time on me - I stand here tall... the absolute best version of myself.

In early 2015 I left my job and packed my car with some surfboards, an airbed, and a camera. I hit the road... travelling around New Zealand for four months on a journey of discovery and a venture into the unknown which led me to the Four Corners of NZ and my first ever creative project. 
Thanks to social media my pictures and stories were shared, commented on, and written about. Before I knew it my journey had been documented by friends, family, brands and strangers from all around the world.. With a natural progression after this into a world of commercial freelance photography and a variety of clients and projects I have loved working with such a great variety of people, friends, clients and families. 

In 2018 I worked with Emirates Team New Zealand in Bermuda for the 35th America's Cup campaign as their team photographer and managed the team's daily storytelling via Instagram. An experience I will never forget.

All I can hope is to continue to maintain balance in life and keep it simple.
