More often than not, our lives reflect the preconditioned, rather than what’s really in our hearts. At Sydney Romantics we believe that what defines us and connects us as human beings are the things that we love. Through the Faces of Sydney collaboration with portrait photographer Jamie Espinosa, we’re telling the stories of our city, through its people and their passions.

Freelance Graphic Designer
What is your passion or side hustle?
What drives you?
Anything that challenges the normal guideline we’re given for life. Guidelines are boring, do something fun.
How do you juggle it all?
Keep my focus zoomed out allllll the way. The little things fade away when you’re focusing on distance goals. Also my wife Christie (@c_san_) is the greatest.
Who inspires you?
All those others that have started something out of not very much and are still going and creating great things every day.
Where do you see yourself in the future?
Hopefully creating more things that people can enjoy.

Sydney is so bloody big but so connected, I love being able to connect with so many different, interesting & creative people.
