I am a practicing Landscape architect with a concurrent creative practice that is informed and blurred by the landscape.

This includes the facilitation of Soundwalks across Australia for local Councils, Corporations and within festivals such as the Melbourne International Jazz Festival, The Now NOW and Open House Melbourne.

Recent exhibitions of work include:
2012 Endangered Sounds: an acoustic History of Brunswick
2011 Lorne Sculpture Award.

I am currently the incumbent President of the Australian Forum for Acoustic Ecology and this provides a strong focus for my synchronous practice of landscape awareness through challenging perception.

As a performer i have an eclectic approach but it driven by a passionate art brute approach and incessant LIVE and improvised form.
This manifests itself in de-engineering and instrument building and a solo performance that transcends AV classifications by not being digital or being film and thus finds a niche that is about the hand and visceral moment.
