Welcome to my portfolio of projects!

"Creating a success that is different to society's version of success, is a success in itself"

Showcasing my multifaceted work in writing and publishing, web strategy and design, photography and digital media, and my biggest passion of all, snowboarding!
Editorial & Pubishing

From freelance article writing to publishing an award-winning guide book, this is my editorial and publishing work history.

Photo & Video

Focused around 360 degree panoramic photography and specialist time lapse creation, my work behind the lens is specific yet can also be diverse.

Snowboarding

More than 25 seasons of experience from around the World as an Instructor, Guide, Competitive Coach / Judge, and Instructor Trainer / Examiner.

Web Design & Strategy

User-focused web services, from the design of simple and effective websites to the creation of social media strategies.

a brief bio

Based in Wanaka, New Zealand, I have irons in many different fires. My horizon is constantly morphing and new projects capture my inspiration on a regular basis.

My professional life blends the snowsports, digital media and publishing industries together. I am continually balancing my time between coaching on snow, experimenting behind the lens, publishing my written work in both web and print, and creating web sites.

Rider - Stefan Wellauer. #japow #nagano #powspays #romesnowboards @mypakagenz @nzshred  Epic solo night shred to finish off my 10 days at @aomorispringresort Park laps, with perfect jumps and powder landings, under the lights with no one else around!

 Feels so good to be back home in NZ. As much as I love travelling and playing in the beautiful Japanese snow, there's truly no place like home... when you live in a place like this anyway! . . #mtaspiringnationalpark #rapids #lovewanaka #lovenature #nzbeauty #noplacelikehome  I woke up this morning expecting to be behind the lens as usual but with the stormy weather, plans quickly changed. So the local boardercross @aomorispringresort it was... 3rd place among about 50 riders from all around the Tohoku region! Totally surprised and stoked at the same time  @boboproducts @nzshred #romesnowboards #mypakage #boardercross #sbx #japansnowboarding #nevertooold #olddogsrule #stillgotit
