Courtney grew up in Lord of the Rings territory, Matamata, in rural New Zealand. He describes his childhood home as one of rolling, grassy hills and grazing cows – the perfect place to grow up in the 80’s.
Today, based in Melbourne with his much loved Boston Terrier, it is unsurprising that he brings a robust playfulness to his work and an ambition that aims to “knock every job out of the park”. Courtney is a keen Muay Thai kick-boxer and confesses that a passion for chocolate and ice-cream can only be matched by client briefs to illustrate them both. He humbly holds up a handful of awards too, proving hard work eventually pays off, especially when you have the attitude to match.
