I’ve worked many jobs in just a handful of years. I’ve worked in video game stores and clothing stores. I’ve worked in a public relations firm and in construction, and realized that neither of those jobs were for me. I’ve done promotional work for night clubs, airlines and VR headsets. I’ve even graded english and maths papers.
But I’ve always known that my true calling, was to be a creator. I just didn’t know what form my work would take. I’ve tried my hand at creating many things. I’ve written and illustrated comics, children’s books and fantasy horror novels (all unpublished of course). I’ve helped other creators share their stories, by acting in plays, working on independent film sets, selling graphic designs, and putting together advertisements. I tried to start up a business that sold soft toys and ran a fairly successful YouTube comedy channel for several years.
But my greatest achievement to date, was self publishing my first children’s book. It has been 3 and half years since I wrote, illustrated and released, “This is My Home.” A book about several little animals giving their human neighbors a taste of their own medicine.
I’m incredibly proud of that book, and i’m looking forward to seeing what the Quiet Stories team and I will create next.

I’ve included a video below reviewing OneUpGaming’s Audio Books on tape. The product features the first 100 episodes of the websites podcast. I designed the art work for the case, so just wanted to show it off.
Hey guys, am working on a new project that you’ll hopefully like. Here’s some artwork of the protagonist of Bioshock, to give you an idea of what I might be working on. This one’s a bit rough but bare with me.
Got the opportunity to create some more designs recently. Some have been for individual people wanting a rendition of themselves, others have been for businesses such as the recently opened club, Impala, in Auckland CBD. Check them out, I have been helping to promote them recently, and even painted some of the interior.
For my design class I was tasked with creating an infographic for a magazine. I decided to create one around the process of game production. Within this design I discuss a simplified version of said process but hopefully you find it of interest none the less.
I used an arcadey font for the titles and then used the Atari’s font for sub headings and information bubbles. I created these using Adobe Illustrator and am pretty happy with how they turned out. Some of the main infographic’s colors are a little too vibrant in the version I’ve shared. I’ll try get a photo of the final version up when I can.
Hey just designed some new caricature’s. These are some profile pictures I have designed for a few others and myself (I’m the bearded guy). Haven’t done any designs of this nature for a while, but wanted to prove I still had it.
