I started working as a sculptor and getting involved in theatre and festival productions twelve years ago in Edinburgh, working with the likes of Beltane Fire Society, Sativa Night Club and Boiler House Theatre Co.
Around this time I was also getting involved with some Arts Co-operatives, through Dublin St. Studios and Out Of The Blue.
After travelling Europe and getting involved with groups like Mutoid Waste Co, Turbo Zone, Silo Theater and Hugh Jarts i focused more towards interactive metal sculpture, sculpture vehicles and mechanical sculptures, and on producing industrial performances to incorporate these elements into a cohesive environment.
Since moving to Sydney, after working building floats and sculptures for the Olympic Ceremonies, I’ve been working extensively in feature films, television and theatre in set construction, mechanical effects, steel construction and prop building, while also working on my own projects.
I was heavily involved in the running of MEKanarky Studios, up until it closed it’s doors at the end of 2007 and have most recently been involved in the establishment and running of a new Sydney Art Space, Salmagundi Studios, which houses over 20 artists from a range of backgrounds. I’m also currently studying Robotic and Mechatronic Engineering.
