***************************************************************

Hello!

I am a young man with Ushers Syndrome. (To those not in the know, a syndrome must have three or more SEPARATE disabilities to qualify as a syndrome.)
To put it in a nutshell, I am:
* profoundly Deaf
* have night blindness
* RP - Retinitis Pigmentosa, gradual loss of peripheral vision.

As it is, I have under ten percent of my vision left, but as you can see, it's definitely not stopping me from enjoying the world and taking as many pictures of beautiful things as I can.

In 2007 I got a full scholarship to The Learning Connexion in Wellington, New Zealand, where I could further refine my love of carving, painting and photography.
In 2010 I completed Tools for New Media at TAFE and whilst studying there, won the 2010 Tafe Photography Awards (1st place) with the photograph 'Green Smiles'.

Last year I won the Able Australia DeafBlind Photography contest where I came first in the category 'Favorite People' and second in every other category. (Four categories altogether)

This year started off with a huge bang when I was selected to be the Official Photographer of the 2012 Australian Deaf Games in Geelong, Victoria. That was eight days and over 90 hours of insanity for me and then over two months of editing and whittling down 7,700+ photos down to the 1,709 that I finally released.

I reside in Melbourne, Australia where I teach young Deaf students English, film and editing, as well as being a role model. I am also currently working on my own project that hopefully will have a huge impact on the lives of many many deaf people.

Hope you enjoy looking through my pictures, and remember, don't let anything pull you down. Life's too short.
