About me & my work:

I came out of University bright eyed and bushy tailed straight into the commercial television industry. As a result I have media in my blood.

Lured into advertising, I wanted to make a difference to the industry. That passion spawned creation of my first genuine enterprise - 303 Advertising (now Lowe 303). We made an impact as a vocal independent in the Australian advertising and marketing community.

I’ve been really fortunate to have been involved in creating some outstanding marketing campaigns, corporate identities and strategic brand development across many industry categories including retail, national sport, utilities, charities, and Government .

For my sins, I spent three years as a consultant, then CEO of a design consultancy and media company of a celebrity television personality. Bringing strategic brand approach to marketing the celebrity spanning Design, Licensing, Publishing, Online , US television (with Oprah Winfrey's Harpo Productions and PBS production affiliate WGBH Boston) and capital management with funding deals in Australia and the USA.

I'm now ED Marketing for V3, a software company I co-founded in 2001. V3's open booking exchange technology and business model is revolutionising the tourism industry in Australia and soon Asia. The simplest way to describe the Exchange is that it is to tourism what the Stock Exchange is to equities.
