I'm an editorial, commercial & documentary photographer based out of the Gold Coast but am always on the road, travelling near and far, freelancing to national and international clients and publications.
In 2014 I became the only artist in Australia to be awarded funding by VSCO's Artist Initiative to undertake my latest documentary project, In This Skin. In 2015 I travelled around the world to photograph 23 people and share their stories here.
