I was born and went to school in Aurukun. My mother is from Kendal River, south of Aurukun and my father is from Hersey Creek north of Pormpuraaw. He worked as a carpenter and built houses. He also worked for Comalco in Weipa.

I worked in Aurukun as a Health Worker and later had a cleaning job at Aurukun Shire Council before becoming an artist at the Art Centre . My mother Mavis Ngallametta is a very high profile artist from that Art Centre.

I came to Pormpuraaw in 2005, and worked at the Art Centre, and then at HACC. Now I am back at the Art Centre. I mostly like painting things from my daily life – the country around Pormpuraaw and what I see when I go fishing and hunting.

My totem is the kookaburra and jabiru.
