I am an illustrator, writer, cartoonist and live-drawer. Most of all, I am a communicator.
In the course of my working life, I have written film and TV scripts, run writers' rooms, live-sketched events, illustrated everything from children’s books to album covers, created illustrated product lines, run workshops about writing and story-telling, and written about how to save the world (by fixing the environment). I cartoon regularly for Australia's The Age and Sydney Morning Herald newspapers. Narrative, compassion, and humour are at the heart of everything I make and do and am.
