I have a range of skills over various types of construction, with experience in creating and assisting on mechanical art works and machines, general installation and construction, including experience managing others as well as project logistics.
I am comfortable and competent in various construction methods, including timber and metal. Standard cutting, grinding, routing experience, some lathe work in metal and timber. I am competent at oxy-acetylene braising and welding as well as stick electrode. I have foundry experience with low temperature metals, as well as bronze and aluminium, including a variety of hard and soft mould making. I have a good basic knowledge of electronics, wiring and soldering, currently gaining skills on motor control and programming.
In 2014 & 15 I worked as a creative producer at The Un-School of Disruptive Design NYC, while previously in Australia I managed the gallery installation and the adjoining the studio complex at Kings St. artist-run from 2010 - 2013 in Melbourne. I have built and installed works around Australia for Lou Hubbard , Sanja Pahoki , Kiron Robinson , Kel Glaister among others, as well as for the ABC, and public and private institutions.
Opposite are some examples of recent projects, including some of my own work - click on images for more information, and please contact me for any further information or questions.
I am generally game for anything.
