About me & my work:

I've been defining my work since 2004 when, after leaving uni with a degree in the Creative Industries, I began the design company Josephmark with my best mate. We were early recipients of Kaos Pilot education from Michael Donneman, likely to be a distant relative of Remo. We worked for 4 years building our company into a business, with zero business experience. Being naive was our key to success (and many hurdles hit along the way). After 4 years however I needed to pursue other examples of "work" and came down to Sydney to head up the design studio at Taronga Zoo. Yep, I was behind bars. During this time I also began producing the Sydney Bicycle Film Festival, and after 3 years I knew I was an entrepreneur and needed diverse, creative projects to fulfil my life. Shortly after leaving I started the coworking space Homework, which my wife Lauren Anderson and I have since worked from for 2 years, and also Under New Management popup space for ideas. Both are on Oxford St in Darlinghurst. I also co-founded branded content company Projucer with another best mate. Lately, I have been heavily investing in YouTube, after we published a 5 part documentary series which was picked up by SBS and Qantas inflight in 2013. My next steps are going to be big ones as there's no point staying quiet.

My links:

Projucer | Branded content and talent projects. We broker new media partnerships with brands and awesome content.

Homework | A co-working space full of epic people, epic projects and an epic view. We are Sydney's smallest and most social. Folks come here for the community but stay to succeed.

Under New Management | A popup space for ideas. We've been everything from a live late night viewing lounge for Le Tour de France, to an indoor national park, to a whiskey bar saloon for Mumford & Sons. Ideas welcome.
