Someone famous I met was Eric Bana when he was repairing his BMW Motorcycle. When he arrived at the shop I said; “I recognise your face. Are you a comedian? Your face looks familiar.”
The funniest thing that ever happened to me was when I was in London in 2015, a swan attacked me in the Queen’s Gardens.
I grew up in Ayr and went to St. Patrick’s College on The Strand. I spent a few years at James Cook University and North Queensland was my inspiration for developing Virtual Legal.
Growing up in Townsville, I had the chance to play music with some great musicians, such as Gemma Bauman, Andrew Elliott and Will Evans to name a few, and I had lots of support from my family.
When I was little, Avril Lavigne waved to me in a crowd of people because I was holding a sign that said ‘I am Canadian’. People don’t believe she waved to only me but she did – she even squinted to read my sign first!
Photography has allowed me to work as a cruise ship photographer sailing out of New York City on the Hudson River, at online retailer Princess Polly, and live in London assisting on some of the industry’s biggest photo shoots.
My motto is ‘Go ahead and do it now, no matter what the outcomes, it was an experience to learn’.
