Welcome traveller, to my worlds.

 

My goal in life is simple, it has always been to help make the world a better place. I used to think that meant building an army and leading a grand revolution into the new world. However, being an extreme introvert, that was clearly never going to happen. So instead, I decided to make movies. The hope was I'd eventually build a career where I could make movies that would make people think, push their boundaries and inspire the right extrovert to lead the revolution of my design.

Somewhere along the line, I found myself making other peoples movies, as an editor and visual effects artist, rather than making my own. Again I'm thinking it may have had something to do with that pesky introvertedness. Afterall, editing requires sitting in a dark room with no other people around for months on end, just observing and being the puppet master of the story unfolding. It was kind of the perfect job until the producers would want to come in and push their irritating extrovertedness upon me.

In a moment of blinding visionary purpose, I entertained the idea of going into politics, where I could really change the world. Not entirely sure what I was thinking at that particular time in my life but I fondly look back on it as a moment of deranged darkness. Thankfully I came to my senses and cast of the silly notion that politicians actually make a difference. Not to mention if I was in the public eye in that manner, where would I hide?

As the clock turned, I spent much time journeying through deep inner reflection and realised that it could be so much more effective to help one person at a time to make the changes they want within themselves. So I returned to college and gained a degree in life coaching, neuro-linguistic programming, matrix therapies and what would become my new favourite thing, hypnosis. It was my hope that I would be able to find and coach the right person to overcome their emotional setbacks and guide them to leading my revolution.

After several years of trial and error; building a business, failing a business, learning from all the things I did right and all the things I did wrong, resetting and starting again, I finally created a business that I truly love, and is successful. Using elements from all the skills I have learned throughout my life, I educate people in meditation and create online meditations and hypnotherapy sessions that really help people.

Throughout all of this has been one constant. My love for creating stuff. Writing stories, telling stories, creating artwork, photography and for a short time, I even had a short-lived obsession with building world landmarks out of toilet rolls in my bathroom (such as the 'leaning tower of pooza'). Even the meditation and hypnotherapy is incredibly creative.

So my plan with this website is to be a bit of a central hub for all that I do creatively. There will be a section for lots of the writing I've done over the years (at least the somewhat tolerable stuff); poetry, songs, short stories, scripts, psychedelic tripped out nonsense and the like. A section for all the video projects I've created or worked on over the years. A section for all of my digital artwork. And a section for my photography. Most of the art and photography posts will link to my Redbubble page where you can buy them on various prints and products. And a section for my music.

The blog is where I share nuggets of knowledge, wisdom and inspiration, thoughts, ideas, rants, ask you guys questions and generally express anything that I can't anywhere else. Some will be deep, some will be absurd, some will be emotional, and some will be purely observational. You never know, you may just see exactly what you need at the moment you need it. Who knows, you may be inspired to lead my revolution.

 

Have a beautiful day

My Other Web Sites

A personal development podcast and YouTube channel focusing on using meditation to empower every aspect of your daily life. With meditations that cut through the religious, spiritual and other aspects that are commonly associated with the practice, to deliver a pure tool and practice for creating the life you want. With new episodes produced every couple of weeks, each focusing on a different aspect of empowerment.

Always fascinated with the human brain, psychology and how to better ourselves and hack the mind, I gained a diploma of life coaching, becoming a master practitioner of NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programing), Hypnotherapy and Advanced Matrix Therapies. Through Rebellious Coaching, I help people empower people to create the lives they desire free from past emotional burdens.

As a fully qualified hypnotist, I am able to help people with a wide range of problems; weight loss, quitting smoking, quitting sugar, pain management, changing non-resourceful thought patterns, overcoming fears and phobias, reducing stress and a whole bunch more. I practice from an office near to where I live in Frankston, Victoria, Australia and have helped many people live better lives.

Hysteria Productions is my film and video production company that I established in 1994. Under this banner I have produced way too many commercials, music videos, corporate videos, training videos, and other promotional videos to count. I have also provide a number of post-production services and have edited and produced visual effects for a number of feature films.

Lost: Black Earth is the first movie I ever made back in 1999. It was also one of the first movies to be shot on a digital format, even before Star Wars episode 2. Although I look back and cringe at the movie, it was an incredible learning process and gave me a solid basis for a career in the film industry. After randomly deciding to upload it to YouTube in 2012 it has taken on a life of its own.

I discovered Redbubble many years ago and have had an account since 2009. This is where I sell a lot of my artwork and photography printed on to products such as framed prints, postcards, phone and computer cases, pillows, bags, duvets, mugs, note books, t-shirts and other apparel. Some of my designs have been viewed and liked tens of thousands of times and sold many.
