He began his career in animation at Walt Disney Studios in Sydney. He worked as an Animator and Supervising Animator there until 2006, working on both television series and films.

The short was based on the feature film "Chopper", about real-life criminal Mark Brandon Read.

Their Arj and Poopy shorts have received worldwide recognition, most notably winning the internet category at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival in 2005 and 2006. The most recent installment, Congo Windfall was chosen in the Top Ten Best Animated Flash films by the website Cold Hard Flash. It also featured the new character to the series, Bouncy the Dog, voiced by Johnny Brennan of the Jerky Boys fame.

He also directed and animated music video for the TISM song Everyone Else Has Had More Sex Than Me. Some of his commercial work includes the character for Unistraw's worldwide Sipahh Milk Flavouring Straws brand.
