It’s always hard to keep things bang up to date and I prefer to make art rather than post about it. For the most recent updates on my work it’s best to check out my instagram account:

Sydney Opera House: Creative Learning in Leadership
Have spent the last two school terms working with Liverpool Boys High School as part of Sydney Opera House’s Creative Learning in Leadership Program. Initially I led professional development with 6 teachers and then worked with a group of YR9 boys to create a short film looking at Sustainability. The completed work was screened at the Opera House for friends and family – was a great event very well received.
Below are a few stills from the film you can view the whole film on the Opera House’s Facebook Page
Sydney University MBA
Just worked with MBA students on a module looking at Creativity and Business. My role was to support and guide the students to create a series of installation pieces at Redfern Town Hall. Given that most of the students hadn’t created anything artistic since leaving school it was a good event and a learning curve for me.
Feature in BIG kids magazine
Finally completed an epic edit of the Kokoda Trail undertaken last year with Lomandra School. It’s only taken me a year to complete! Soon be time to prep for 2017 trek/film….
