My Dad always told me as a young boy "find something you enjoy doing, get someone to pay you for doing it, and you won't have to work a day in your life". This was the advice I took which lead me to become a Designer.
My speling has always been dreadful, my knowledge of history goes back as far as the year I was born, I can hardly add a tip to my bill without a calculator and my favorite science lesson was putting a pack of Mentos in a bottle of Coke. But load me with a handful of drawing pens, put me in front of Photoshop or equip me with a camera and I'll dazzle you till the cows come home. I'm passionate about design, creativity inspires me and I love thinking outside the box. So thanks Dad for your advice. More importantly though I owe my thanks to the Lord Jesus for blessing me with the gifts He has given me.
I was originally born and raised in New Zealand (the worlds best kept secret). I married my high school sweetheart and we both moved to The States in 2006 to try out this half of the hemisphere for a while, so far it's been pretty good. Coming from an island tucked away at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean by Antarctica, it is easy to get a little cabin fever, so here we are... seeing the world. Needless to say, we both love traveling, experiencing different cultures and creating as many memories as possible in different parts of the world.
I don't have a man cave, football and baseball put me to sleep and the idea of crushing cans of beer on my head has never really appealed. So when I'm not designing, you'll either find me cooking in the kitchen, at the gym, behind my camera, editing, or at the park with my wife, walking the dog.
