"Could not have been happier with this. I booked a hens party for my sister and they curated a fully personalised hunt with the most gorgeous ending."

Just finished playing the Date Night Treasure Hunt. It was a lot of fun! It was very laid back, enjoyable, and got us both laughing out loud multiple times.

Me 8.png

Hi, I'm James,

 I am a dedicated storyteller, puzzler, time traveler, and adventurer at heart. 

I design experiences using treasure maps, hidden clues, and venue affiliations.

I'd love to hear from you, please don't hesitate to contact me below.



I have learned behavioural management from my 7+ years as a team-building facilitator, theatre-maker, and early childhood educator.

My work in the Brisbane theatre industry has seen me write, direct, perform, produce, teach, and build multimodal theatre since 2012.

I have been making and designing puzzle  experiences since 2017 when I founded the Brisbane Treasure Hunt Society



I am dedicated to the art of wonder. I have seen and felt how an experience, minute in delivery but profound in consequence, can reshape our perceptions of not only the world, but of ourselves.

I am on a lifelong quest to discover these experiences for myself so I can recreate and share them for others.

The secret is that it's simple

The simple thing is that its no secret.
