I am ambitious, I love the banter and am a big believer in surrounding yourself with passionate, like-minded souls who bring the best out of you in your personal life and professional career and quite often these mix quite well together, as I’ve discovered as a professional in both the music industry and the digital sphere over the past 10 years.
 
Back in 2010 I met an TV editor, by the name of Alister Robbie, whilst I was working as a music supervisor on Ballistyx Snowboard Show on Channel GO! Over the past 6 years our own parallel paths have driven each other forward, as gentlemen with a passion for life and shared ambition.
 
Flash forward 6 years later, Al’s production company The Post Project is thriving, and my own career and business grows from strength-to-strength and it’s exciting to think how far we’ve both come in such a short space of time.
 
One of the wonderful elements of focusing my energies on nurturing positive friendships like these, is that invariably I meet new like-minded people from their world (and them mine) and our shared network of energizing, inspiring people propels us all forward to a life of great joy and success (don’t worry, there are still plenty of challenges along the way, but I like to focus on the positive) 😀
 
Through my friendship with Al and shared our love of craft beer, I’ve met a lot of interesting, intelligent and inspiring individuals whom I now count as my friends, including ambitious Two Row Bar co-founder and Good Beer Week social media lead, Tiffany Waldron.
 
4 years ago, Tiff up and quit her full-time job to follow her passions and just two years later, out of her passion for delicious and different “frothies” and her social media work with Good Beer Week, Two Row Bar sprung to life. With five rotating taps that change weekly and feature only the best craft beer from Australia, the USA and around the world, Two Row Bar has become a  hub for Australian craft beer lovers, brewers and Fitzroy locals to call their own.
 
It’s uplifting to see so many of my friends shoot for the stars, put their money where their mouth is by taking a punt and watch as their dreams come to life before my very eyes, so if you’re energised and inspired by the excitement of discovering delicious new craft beers, learning more about the evolution of craft beer in both Australia and the USA and the not-so-secret to generating success from your passion and ambitions, then this little podcast is the one for you. 
 
So proud of you, Tiff. Let’s get into it!

The Paterson Project – Majestic street-art for the most perfect cause.

Posted on Updated on

The Paterson Project - Street-artists raising funds for the Royal Children's Hospital Foundation

Streetart exhibition raises funds for Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation

Anyone who knows me knows how much I’ve fallen in love with Melbourne’s street-art scene over the past few years and so as exhausted as I was after a hectic week, nothing could stop me jumping on my bike and riding late through the wet streets of Melbourne on Friday night to attend a wonderful event on Smith St in Fitzroy for the most perfect cause.

The Paterson Project was held at heritage-listed Paterson Building where over the course of the past week, over 100 artists, including the likes of Rone, Adnate, Mayo, DVATE, Facter, Alexandra Lederman and many more, dedicated their time to decorating the walls of this grand old building with their works of art to be auctioned off to raise funds for the Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation.

Packed to the rafters with more hipsters than you could poke a beard at, it was wonderful to be able to appreciate so many majestic pieces of art in the one place and I wandered up and down the 3 floors of this living and breathing masterpiece for over an hour.

One of my simplest weekend pleasures is to spend hours wandering previously unexplored alleyways or even streets that I think I already know around Melbourne, with the prospect of stumbling upon some unexpected beauty…

Occasionally, I’ll overhear people bitching about their favourite piece being tagged by some young punk or being covered up by a new piece of artwork that they don’t like, but what they don’t consider and they’re missing is that there-in lies its beauty – street-art is the perfect, symbolic reflection of life on this planet – beauty is everywhere, fleeting and quite often in the last place you’d expect to find it… captivating in one moment and then gone the next – as such it helps teach us to appreciate every single moment for what it is and even when it fades or is gone, becomes a part of us forever.

Beauty is everywhere. Enjoy!

Apologies to any artists who’s names we’ve missed or for any incorrectly labelled artworks. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch so that we can update accordingly.

Melbourne – just how I like my city life

Posted on Updated on

Ferdyduke - Melbourne

The weekend is my time and this one just gone, one of my close Sydney-based Melbourne-raised mates, Krys, came south of the border to soak up what Melbourne’s culture has to offer – Killer coffee, live sport, street-art and music.

Friday night we hit AAMI Park for the Melbourne Rebels Super 15 match, where Melbourne’s latest sporting team were beaten by the top of the table  South African side, Durban Sharks, despite dominating possession and ample opportunity to come away with victory.

Saturday morning I took Krys out in search of some of Melbourne’s finest coffee, food and service at Di Bella Coffee Roasting Warehouse in North Melbourne, sparked up a conversation with a beautiful, friendly Italian-Australian woman (and even babysat the dogs she was dog-sitting for a while), followed by a stroll around Queen Vic Markets, antipasti lunch + chilling, arvo walk around some of Melbourne CBD key street-art highlights and Eliza Hull live at Northcote Social Club, supporting Hayden Calnin‘s latest EP launch.

Lazy day Sunday, but this is just how I like my city life and here are a few wicked pics from our street-art jaunt + the show.

Sating my sense of wanderlust.. without even leaving the city.. Streetart & Photography..

Posted on Updated on

Pretty lady on the Fitzroy backstreets

There’s this fire burning inside me.. in my life I’ve lived in well over half a dozen cities in Australia, the Middle East, Italy and Indonesia.

Based in Dubai from 1999 – 2006 working for Emirates Airline, I jet-setted extensively across the planet every few days visiting many unusual and inspiring places. At the time it sated the sense of wanderlust I’ve been possessed with from when I was a kid, but since my return to Australia it has only served to fuel my hunger for the constant stimulation of new experiences, to explore the world and exist in new environments.

In lieu of jumping on a jet-plane across the planet on a week-to-week basis, in a city as diverse as Melbourne it is actually possible to escape, explore hidden bars and alleyways and to lose yourself in a different world as needed.

Just 5 minutes from Melbourne CBD, Fitzroy’s backstreets are an evolving gallery of amazing, urban artwork and just one of the many experiences you can enjoy exploring this city with a DSLR/smartphone and a few hours on your hands.

Sometimes happiness and peace don’t have to cost the price of a plane ticket.

From the streets of Fitzroy to fine shores of Canada, blues & roots rockers Jungal are hitting the studio!

Posted on Updated on

Jungal

From the streets of Fitzroy to the fine shores of Canada, blues & roots rockers Jungal are hitting the studio!

Hailing from country Victoria, Jungalwalla sister (Leisha and Jessie) & adopted sibling Vic typify the hard-working Australian indie rock band. With punters spoilt for music choice in this country, emerging artists have to diversify, make their own way and create new opportunities off their own back. Jungal have toured Australia 8 times and have built quite a following touring the Canadian summer festival circuit 3 times in the past few years.

Not shy of the camera, a cheeky beer and wicked banter, the all-girl trio created this cute little vid to drive crowd-sourced funding to record their 2nd studio album before they jet off to North America for tour #4.

Jungal are 100% independent, self-funded & self-managed band.

Watch the vids, download free tunes off triple j Unearthed, share the ♥ & get involved!
