Completed Bachelor Degree Business Marketing at the age of 22.

I worked a number of odd jobs for a few years and then at age 25 began to freelance as a stylist and producer working along side some of Melbourne's top advertising and fashion photographers. At age 27 I went to work as art buyer/producer at one of Melbourne's leading advertising agencies Samuelson Talbot.

At age 29 I left Melbourne at and moved to Sydney where I worked for numerous small companies including top model agency Chic Management as an artist manager, leading photographic management agencies 2c management www.2c.com.au and DLM as a producer/agent and advertising agency Our Agency as the studio manager.

At age 33 was hired by a new startup AEG (Artists and Entertainment Group) which managed actors, models, musicians and children to set up a new photographic division which I went on to run for approx 3 years.

At age 35 I decided to set up my own agency Katapolt which is now in its 6th year of operation.
