The pandemic hit hard. Existing clients cancelled jobs and the uncertainty of the future made it hard to continue business as usual.
Unprecedented times called for a rethinking of my practice. I’ve been very fortunate with clients coming to me via word of mouth but have always struggled with communicating what I do.
My sister and her then fiancé (who happen to be filmmakers) were getting ready to get married. I wanted to make them something as a wedding gift so I proposed an arrangement: make a custom joinery piece for their home in exchange for allowing me to document the process on video and work together remotely during one of Melbourne’s many lock downs.
