HAWKIE HERE.

Thanks for stopping by. I'm currently an Art Director working at Banjo Sydney where I've been for the last two years. 

Whether it's creating music festival activations to encourage safer sex, or developing an app to inspire kids to be more active, I love creating ideas that drive real change. 

I’ve always considered myself to be creative at heart. If I wasn’t drawing the big new superhero in my sketchbook as a kid, I was nearly burning down my parents' house trying to shoot the next Spielberg film - a lighter and a can of deodorant should never find their way into the hands of an 11-year-old.

I’m always trying to express myself in one way or another. From breaking into the Sydney Airport Runways to get the perfect photo to experimenting with sensory deprivation tanks, discovering and expressing myself creatively for me is a need, not a choice.

Over the last four years I’ve been lucky enough to work on great brands including Crown Group, AMP, Nando's, The Australian Human Rights Commission, Coca-Cola, Alinta, Microsoft and Xbox. We recently finished second overall at this year’s Young Glory Professional Category and picked up the top gong at the 2018 Mumbrella Awards for our work on Down To Test. My work has also been recognised by Caples, Sigi and AGDA awards.
