As an avid photographer of ten years now I've made photographs with everything from 4x5 large format film through to Digital 35mm. I've enjoyed landscape photography, toyed with conceptual photography and am lucky to have some more recent works on permanent display as part of the Landmarks Exhibition at the National Museum of Australia.

I am a fan of all things online and proud of my roles as an early contributor to the Postcode Plants Database sponsored by Royal Mail and the British Museum of Natural History as I am with the development of China's first online supermarket website back in 1997 featuring credit card processing and inventory control.
