What I’m doing with my life
I'm a freelance photographer, so in the summer I shoot a lot of weddings, and year round I work with graphic design firms when they want documentary images of people at events and using products. Some of my clients are big multinational brands, some are small social work & charity non-profits.

Before I turned photographer, I was working & researching at a NZ university.
I’m really good at
Listening. Non small talk. Combining business and art. Taking photos of things.
The first things people usually notice about me
Big camera, pointy shoes, silly hat. Must be a photographer.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Photography (obviously). Business strategy (my degree is in that, so why not use it...). Friends and Family. Exercise routines (trying to work a bit of the primal lifestyle into my week). Religious history. Existentialism. Law of attraction (I'm trying not to be too woo! about the whole thing). Creativity. Art history (for inspiration). Travelling more (I've been to China, Singapore, Australia, US, UK, Estonia, France, Italy, and Turkey, and I'm determined to see more of the world).
On a typical Friday night I am
Lately, working. My business keeps me super busy. Maybe visiting friends. Or editing the shots from a photo session earlier in the week. I don't drink so bar hopping isn't really my thing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
On here? I'm an INTJ. Make of that what you will...
