Produced scriptwriter, published author, published journalist, presenter, actor, musician, songwriter and producer – there isn’t much that I haven't tried my hand at. My number one key passion is storytelling, regardless of the medium - from motion picture to 100,000+ word novels, there are infinite stories to be told and infinite ways to tell them .
Killer of Stars is my first full length novel, although I have been playing around with story ideas and plans for other novels for many years. The first in a SF trilogy, I try to balance my literary influences with imaginative new concepts and ideas. While I chose Science Fiction as the medium for my first novel, my love is not so much the hard science element of the genre, rather the creative way in which it allows you to tell a story. I don't like the idea of being tethered to a certain genre - indeed, I have a number of contemporary fiction stories in the works which I hope to publish in the future.
In addition to authoring, I've had numerous scripts produced, from short films to TV pilots to major television commercials and online promotional videos. As a writer, my television pilot, The Carousel (2012) gained much praise for its confronting and topical themes, and the short film Run Baby, Run (2015) which I scripted and starred in was a Bronze Award Winner at the 2015 Spotlight Short Film Awards. I've also been the script writer for numerous highly successful advertising campaigns for large international companies, such as Toyota, Bridgestone Tyres, Valvoline Oils and many more. The videos produced from these scripts have had tens of millions of views world-wide.
I've also spent many years as a highly regarded journalist, having worked on numerous titles including Overlander 4WD, Truckin’ Life, Modern Fishing and Australian 4WD Action. In fact, I've served as the editor of Overlander for two years, and am the current editor of 4WD Action.
As well as being a prolific writer, I've also done a considerable amount of commercial presenting, having appeared in advertising campaigns for numerous companies including Kumho Tyres, Australian Frontline Machinery and Berrima Diesel Services. I've also acted in numerous short films, a TV pilot (The Carousel) and feature film Inhuman Resources (Redd Inc. in Australia), which aired on HBO in the US.
I genuinely believe that if you have the passion to tell stories, then you have the ability to create worlds – and that’s exactly what I love to do.
