His collaborative and pragmatic approach to content creation and intuitive spatial design gives Start Beyond its edge.

He began his career as a director and producer, directing films and theatre at the University of Sydney as an undergraduate. After heading overseas and working for Bob Geldof’s Planet 24 television production company, he returned to Sydney as the in-house director / producer at various production agencies before transitioning into digital, pioneering Southern Cross Austereo’s online video strategy, working with talent such as Foo Fighters, Lady Gaga, Coldplay, Ed Sheeran, Katy Perry, and Paul Kelly. He then went on to establish Nova Entertainment as one of Australia’s most popular entertainment sites.
