I am an adventurer, sports enthusiast, fun, thrill seeking person that loves all of lifes given moments!

You only get certain moments in life once, and having the opportunity to capture these instances for people to relive them

for years to come is what drew me to photography.

Life should be fun! Photos should be a time of joy, laughter, love and saving the moment of right then and there.

I crave any opportunity to be different and try something new, nothing is too scary, too hard or too out there

(I defiantly struggle to sit still for too long).

My wife said I should write something personal about myself because it might be a good ice breaker… so here goes my best effort!

I grew up living and breathing sports, specifically hockey.

I trained everyday and my dream was to play professionally for the Australian hockey team.

All things were looking good up until I injured both my knees and they rendered me unfit to play.

I had to stop playing immediately and give up something that meant everything to me. 

I had to re evaluate my goals and dreams, jumping from job to job unsure of where I was meant to be and where I was going. 

One door closed and the next opened!

I’m so blessed to be able to capture such incredible moments and have a lot of fun with some awesome people while doing it!

Life is such an incredible journey, and I love being able to capture it!

I love coffee so lets have one and tell me all about your journey!
