I spent quite a few years living in London and this is where I started to manage my first small businesses.
London was also the place where I acquired the passion and skills that would set me on my future professional path.
Whilst travelling a found that I had a passion for photography.
Photography indulged and balanced the creative and aesthetic side of my personality with my desire to travel and see new horizons.
Also whilst in London, I started my journey into website design or what was then known as "Multimedia".
This is where I began learning programs like Adobe Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Flash and Illustrator which would become the tools of my trade over the next few decades.
After returning from my travels overseas I found myself living and working on Hamilton Island where I reside and work to this day.
Yes, It's a tough job living in paradise but someone's gotta do it.
Why Hamilton Island you ask? well at the time pretty much my whole family were living and working on Hamilton Island and have lived apart from my family for so long it was for me the place I needed to be.
Whilst living on the island my passion for photography was rekindled as I start my career as a professional photographer.
Over the years I have photographed everything from newlyweds to real estate, celebrities to newborns and pretty much everything in between.
As of writing this About Me article, I am currently the Manager of Hamilton Island Photography.
I still love to combine my passion for photography and travel and I try to holiday every year in unusual and "Off the Beaten Track" countries where I like nothing better than immersing myself in the local environment, always on the lookout for interesting and unusual images and scenes to photograph.
It was also this passion that helped me to achieve my "Masters in Photography" several years ago and I regularly compete and have had quite a few successes in National Photography competitions.
Not to be one to let the grass grow under my feet I have also during my time on Hamilton Island indulged my passion for Website Design and Development.
Freelancing my Website Design business brings all of my life skills to focus in one place. It allows me to create and develop strong "One on One" business and personal relationships whilst combining my passions for design and construction, aesthetics and photography.THANKS FOR READING ABOUT ME.
Well, that's pretty much all about me without me waffling on too much.
