During his career he has worked on many large, medium and small projects as a project manager, lead designer, consultant, brand developer, content writer, SEO provider, artist and digital marketer (and more).
He started in the industry in 2002 when he used to work for a Film and TV Creative Media Facility at Roma Street in Brisbane. Prior to that he worked as a junior sign-writer (apprentice), a newspaper ads designer, an architectural model makers assistant and a bunch of other things.
Jay also creates graphic art, illustrations, surfboard art, skateboard art, t-shirt art, motorbike helmet art, etc (pretty much anything). He also accepts commission projects.
