It has been a long time coming, but my website has finally had (another) make-over, and new posts are coming soon. Why the long break? Unfortunately 2013 and 2014 did not leave me with a lot of time to post, working full-time (and long hours) every week, as well as completing my studies and graduating […]
The man knighted by the Queen and recognised as the inventor of the World Wide Web visited Sydney Town Hall this evening to speak and debate issues relating to how the web has revolutionised the everyday life of citizens today. Tim BL only had 20 jam packed minutes to go over his invention, which […]
My short attempt at a Project 366 this year (ended due to being an insatiable photographer) did yield some fun images. To photograph coloured ink, I used coloured food dye and an eye dropper and shot with a macro lens. It really only took a drop or two for a dramatic colour to appear. For […]
Suburb: Ultimo, Sydney Fun fact: Ultimo was so named because of a clerical error on estate owner Dr. John Harris’ legal case. His offence was listed as ‘Ultimo’, meaning having occurred in the previous month rather than ‘Instant’. Enjoy the pics!

Delighted at the end of a long week to see one of my photos from Vivid Sydney 2012 splashed across the Vivid Sydney Facebook Page and Walls: The fun things you can do with a $3 cable release! Seriously, you should get one. Have a great weekend Sydney!

One question that appealed to me in the week of studying digital games is the view of games being a social activity. Here’s something to ask yourself (courtesy of my Uni tutor, Eleanor): What […]
On music last week, I came across a lot of great videos on YouTube covering the remix culture within music. Here are some of the highlights: Everything is a Remix Part 1 from Kirby Ferguson on Vimeo. Part 2 of the Series above, this video touches on remixes in film: Everything is a Remix Part […]
This week, we looked at music. It’s been a topic I have looked forward to discussing, as through online platforms like MySpace (which funnily enough, I am no longer a member of), I was able to connect to many commercially successful artists as a fan and able to meet them personally, attend their gigs for […]
