The face behind Fistful of Dynamite.

Specialising in engaging design and content creation.

In short, I’m a multi-disciplinary designer and content creator with roots in magazine publishing, graphic design and advertising. I bring more than 25 years of experience and passion to every project I work on.

Design for the printed page has evolved into the online experience. Taking in content, branding, and more. From websites to phones, across brand guidelines and social media. Deadlines and time management as crucial as the creative output. 

Whether I’m helping to define your brand in print or on screen, develop social media content campaigns, designing logos or working on full brand development, I care deeply about creating work that helps people and their businesses thrive and grow.

Have a look through some of the clients and the work I’m proud to be a part of.

Life behind bars….

When I’m not working or with my friends and family, it’s odds on that you’ll find me riding. 

Whatever the wheel size, from 20inch all the way through to 275, riding keeps the dream alive and a smile on my face. Be it on local trails or around the world. Having worked in the bike industry (to support my passion?) since the ripe ol’ age of 15 via shops, distributors, bike messengering, international publications and my own two magazine titles, I am connected to many of the industry’s brands and media channels.

Alongside my naturally aspirated riding, motorbikes are the other side of the coin. After art directing Australasian Dirt Bike back in 2000, I’ve since worked with motorcycle brands, titles, events and more. Every weekend is a coin toss between shredding trails on MTB or back roads on my Ducati… 

WHAT DOES
THAT ALL MEAN?

Put simply, if you’re a two wheel focussed company, I have an intimate knowledge of both the gear and the audience. Let’s talk and see what I can offer to your brand.
