Based in Burleigh Heads on the Gold Coast, I am a creative soul who is never far from the ocean. I love the lifestyle of living in a warm and vibrant coastal town, where having the perfect work / life balance is attainable and stress free. My creativity is explored through music and writing, but I am most passionate about photography. My passion began when shooting scenic and landscape images of the beautiful coastline, later developing into a career in photojournalism, portraiture, fashion and event photography.
