From 2006 to 2009 I sailed across the Atlantic and Pacific oceans solo in a 26ft boat. This adventure was the subject of a feature length film called Between Home, made by German/Australian filmmaker Jack Rath.
Other adventures since then have included sailing voyages from Palau to Darwin and San Francisco to Sydney. Stories from these voyages are littered throughout this blog which has been updated since 2006.
In 2014 I founded and produced Australia’s largest conference on digital privacy, called The Privacy Workshop, which garnered support from organisations including Google, Facebook, GetUp, SpiderOak and others.
In 2015 I worked on a handful of drone (UAV) related projects, including a large-scale project for Holden & the Vice Creators project where I led the drone team (making of documentary here). I also shot & edited a Weet-bix ad for Youtube.
I studied Fine Arts at the Victorian College of the Arts, graduating in 2005, majoring in photography. My interest lies in large format photography, installation & video art.
In 2014 I spoke on my sailing and other projects at DO Lectures Australia:
