Dewan Demmer portraitI haven’t run a marathon, nor have I even been to the top of the Himalayas. But I have travelled to many far away places. I have made it my life’s goal to be as creative as possible towards everything I endeavour, aside from my morning coffee, that is. I don’t always make my bed, but lazy I’m not. On a deserted island, I’d go insane without photography, film, music, my wife Claire, my daughter Kia, my Son Carrick and our family pets. Storytelling, creativity, and visual magic – regardless the medium – makes my heart beat that little bit faster and me grin a lot more.

I like dogs, I love the way they will chase after their curiosity. Most days I feel like those dogs. I can find humour in almost anything. Its a work in progress.

I have succeeded at many things in life, whether by luck or practice I am not quite sure, but I am grateful for each one of those successes however they came to be. I believed in being transparent long before I realised it was important, and I believe deeply in teamwork, community, and coming together. Lets have a cup of coffee together, better yet lets climb the Himalayas.
