Faculty of Business, Design and Service Industries
I’m a multimedia artist and musician and teach visual arts, design and creative technologies at Toi Ohomai.
I have a Master of Visual Art from Wintec. My recent work has focused primarily on sound and video as well as exploring the influence of rhythm and flow on the human experience.
I have a keen interest in alternative music and live music. I currently provide sound work for local and touring bands at The Jam Factory in Tauranga and actively write, record and perform my own music for ‘We Will Ride Fast’, who will be releasing a third album in early 2021.
I’ve spent the past 25 years building a career as a practicing artist and musician, completing several private and public artworks. I’ve also released more than 30 albums as either a solo artist or as part of various groups, as well as winning a number of industry awards, including the National Contemporary Art Award People’s Choice Award in 2018 and the Supreme Award for Adult Educator in the Bay of Plenty Region in 2018.
When I’m not at work, I’m interested in ancient history and architecture. I’m a father to busy young kids.
