Creative Director and Founder of Thirst – A Craft Drinks Brand Consultancy. I began my craft beer journey back home in Sydney, Australia. The Local Taphouse was my beloved watering-hole where I learnt the magic, passion and quality of craft beer. In February 2012, I was convinced by a ‘wuman’ to move to the sunny shores of Glasgow. This is where I merged my love of all thing craft beer with my design studio – which eventually specialised in the craft drinks industry. I now works with craft breweries and craft drinks brands around the world. Through my extensive experience in the industry I have gained the ability to intimately define and develop craft drinks brands’ identities - visually and theoretically. I have a keen interest in writing about beer and am fortunate enough to have had his articles published in numerous publications around the world.
