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

Snowboard Coach and Trainer | Photographer and 360 Media Specialist | Writer and Web Professional | NZSIA Board Member | Traveller and Lover of the Outdoors

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.

 Astrophotography is beautiful art form that takes many a night to perfect. I’m on that journey and finally have a shot that is worthy of publishing. . . #startrails #astrophotography #nightphotography #nznightsky #sonya9  Telling the story of riding the @theoldghostroad with imagery ... here’s no 7 of 12. — The 300 step decent. Unrideable unfortunately so it was a rear wheel balancing act the whole way... but it made the adventure all the more interesting! . . #oldghostroad #backcountrymountainbiking #multidayride #mountainbiking #mtb #westcoastnz #mustdonz #300stepdecent #adventures #adventureworld

 Telling the story of riding the @theoldghostroad with imagery ... here’s no 11 of 12. — A moment of luxury... Barry from The Old Ghost Road arranged this piping hot bush shower for us at the end of the track, at the Rough and Tumble lodge.

 Telling the story of riding the @theoldghostroad with imagery ... here’s no 10 of 12. — Riding the last leg on day 3 with only just enough energy left in the tank. Let’s be honest though, my #commencalbike does most of the work.  @richie_johnston . . #oldghostroad #backcountrymountainbiking #multidayride #mountainbiking #mtb #westcoastnz #mustdonz @blueshark_nz  Telling the story of riding the @theoldghostroad with imagery ... here’s no 4 of 12. — 26kms in and @davesspace @richie_johnston and @bronipepe all showing very different responses at the achievement thus far! . . #oldghostroad #backcountrymountainbiking #multidayride #mountainbiking #mtb #westcoastnz #mustdonz #stokers
 Telling the story of riding the @theoldghostroad with imagery ... here’s no 9 of 12. — How else do you spend Halloween on the Ghost Road... pretending to be ghosts of course. . . #oldghostroad #backcountrymountainbiking #halloween #westcoastnz #mustdonz #adventures  Telling the story of riding the @theoldghostroad with imagery ... here’s no 3 of 12. — Coming out of the tree line into the rolling cloud, riding along a technical ridge with severe drop-offs on every bend, was a moment I’ll never forget. This part of the track was truly unreal! . . #oldghostroad #backcountrymountainbiking #multidayride #mountainbiking #mtb #westcoastnz #mustdonz #doordie
 Telling the story of riding the @theoldghostroad with imagery ... here’s no 8 of 12. — A refreshing stop half way through at this wonderful waterfall. And yes... we did go for a swim! . . #oldghostroad #backcountrymountainbiking #multidayride #westcoastnz #mustdonz #adventures #adventureworld #waterfalls  Telling the story of riding the @theoldghostroad with imagery ... here’s no 2 of 12. — The climb... with numerous old landslides to cross, some sections required a welcome break from the saddle. . . #oldghostroad #backcountrymountainbiking #multidayride #mountainbiking #mtb #westcoastnz #mustdonz @nzshred
