  • Another on-screen feature

    In addition to being a general handy-person, I’m a maker of sets and props, and also a tutor at Toi Whakaari for the making of sets & props. So it was nice to see one of my woodworking jobs quite a few years ago, featured in a viral video, of swan lake bath ballet (you […]

  • Hero Movie Props

    For the last 9 months or so, I’ve been really fortunate to be working full-time with Human Dynamo. This is a company, based in Miramar, Wellington.

  • Custom Super King Four Poster Bed

I primarily began making it for myself, but then later sold it to a very happy customer when I moved […]
