I am a Canberra-based cultural materials conservator, portrait photographer and chordophonist. At the bench I maintain a broad speciality in a range of material and object types, working equally with my hands and my brain. In my photographic practice I specialise in portrait photography, using the camera to explore, understand and communicate my relationships with people and the world.
I hold a Master of Cultural Materials Conservation, a Bachelor of Arts (Photography) and a Bachelor of Media and Communication (Honours). My prior research has included 3D imaging of cultural heritage artefacts (ie., rare musical instruments) using photogrammetry and x-ray micro-CT, and visual culture theory, including the ethics of portraiture.
I have enjoyed many years of experience as a freelance collection manager, heritage digitsation specialist, photographer, printer, archivist, graphic designer and banjo player. Described by my mother as ‘a promising boy’, I have been known to dress eccentrically, if at all, and am wont to erupt in song or playful argument without warning.
