I spent my youth living on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia. Soon after my nineteenth birthday I graduated with a Diploma of Fashion. I spent my twentieth birthday in London where I was working and travelling for six months around various countries in Europe.
At 23, I moved to Melbourne,Victoria, where I studied Multimedia for a year before moving to study Graphic Design at the University of Ballarat. Here I met my partner, Mikala.
I graduated from UB, in 2007 (at age 25), with a Bachelor of Visual Arts (Graphic Design/Multimedia), and won the Australian Graphic Design Association Award for finishing top of my class. The job hunt began soon after. I landed a job with long-standing Australian Clothing Company “Jag” as their menswear graphic designer in Melbourne.
Two years later, Mikala and I resigned from our graphic design postions and embarked on a photographic adventure, framing the world in our own unique ways for 650 Days, in 44 countries, on 6 continents, always armed with our camera gear.
This time of epic intrepid travelling is how and why ALL THE LOVE IN THE WORLD : The Book, has been born. A journey of finding love in all things.
