About Me


I am a photographer from Melbourne, Australia. There's nothing I love more than traveling the world with my bulky medium format film camera (I regret nothing).

I am super friendly and easy going. I'd like to think that I would go out of the way to do someone a favour or help out anyone in need the best way I can.

There's nothing I love more than drinking a good beer and conversation with good company. When I travel I like to be outdoors and immersed in nature


I am consumed by imagery. Photography and thinking about photography engages most of my time (the documentary, travel and social commentary disciplines in particular). I am also a lover of film and good television, music (particularly festivals and gigs).

In recent times I've found myself very interested in humanities and the social sciences. Lots of reading and lots to learn.

Music, Movies, and Books

I could go on forever about what films and music I like, but in summary:

Music: I really, really like Pavement
Films: Blue Velvet, Persona

Sadly not much of a (book) reader, or should I say finisher. I have something of a short attention span. Though lately I've been introducing myself to cultural and social anthropology.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Producing a photo book and my first solo exhibition in 2015. Both well received.

Experiencing Iceland in an all-girl 4WD trip in 2014. We nailed it.

Teach, Learn, Share

The Western world is a tiresome place. To learn new perspectives and grow, visit the east.

What I Can Share with Hosts

An open mind and a positive attitude. Also knowledge of cameras/film photography if required.

Countries I’ve Visited

Belgium, Brunei Darussalam, Canada, Cook Islands, Czech Republic, Estonia, Faroe Islands, Fiji, Finland, France, Germany, Greenland, Iceland, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom, United States

Countries I’ve Lived In
