What’s your link to Townsville?
After growing up in Bowen, I moved to Townsville in 2008 to study graphic design and photography at JCU. I was then lucky enough to be able to work for two local creative agencies and finally go freelance in 2015.
Where are you now?
I’m based in Brisbane these days, but still service quite a few Townsville clients, which is nice. During my time in Townsville I transitioned from graphic design over to motion design and film, mostly creating dynamic and engaging animations for various companies and events.
What’s your next project?
I’ve always got a few things happening at once, but I’m really starting to look at ways to expand into the social media space while keeping it affordable for small and medium-sized businesses. We’re seeing video and animation pop up more and more on social media and I’m curious to ride that wave.
What’s happening with your personal life?
My partner Lexi and our cat Pandora live in South Brisbane, which is a beautiful area that’s really come along in the last 10 years. There are lots of restaurants nearby, which is always a big plus for me! Most of my family still lives in Bowen so it’s nice to get up there to see them when I can.
How did your time in Townsville set you up for success?
I think the best thing about Townsville for me was that many of the projects didn’t have the time or budgets for big egos. You had to wear a few hats at any one time and just get in there and do it. I learnt to be really self-sufficient in that environment, which I’m really grateful for.
