Ocean is committed to facilitating the creative process in all who are willing to express themselves and establish their footprint. Ocean operates a defined, dedicated and determined process to bring a book to life and build a sustainable future as an authority in your space, change agent or simply for creative expression.

His 20+ year career in the creative arts has been one he has great respect and gratitude for. Following four years in Film & Television in New Zealand, Ocean spent a year in entertainment promotion before beginning his publishing journey. Starting as a Digital Production Manager for an educational publisher, Ocean was soon promoted into a sales role which quickly developed into Sales Manager for both the educational and traditional arm of the company.

As the internet took its grip over the creative arts industries, Ocean was integral in the development and management of New Zealand's premier self-publishing house, PublishMe. Over the next six years, Ocean held the position as lead client manager for PublishMe, spent six months as a radio show host, successfully completed a Diploma in Creative Writing, became a qualified Workflow Trainer and was nominated - and won - two national awards for service to authors. Ocean then departed New Zealand to expand his creative reach into Australia.

Ocean played a major role in the birth of an independent publishing house in Queensland before capturing the essence of his own creativity and launching an assisted independent publishing house that wears his name. He has successfully established a fruitful book marketing mentorship program where independent authors not only achieve their vision of bringing a book to life, but also generate tangible and profitable results.

Ocean has spoken at over 150 seminars and conferences and is regularly booked to speak about publishing, creative expression and leadership, workflow and sales, and inspires with his popular keynote From Adoption to Awesome - One Man's Journey To Liberation. He believes that success is a journey, not a destination and that to find our greatness we need to discover our purpose. Trained in Workflow Management, Ocean also offers a ground-breaking system that can increase sales by over 60%, and improve productivity and staff engagement within any industry and corporation.

In 2016, Ocean founded the world's first humanitarian speaking bureau (eMAGINE Academy) of heart based authors committed to creating healthier and happier workplace environments and experiences. In 2018, he took the eMAGINE speaking team to Singapore with the half-day presentation 'People Are More Important Than Profit'. Due to high demand, they have been booked to return in November of 2018 and to also expand the eMAGINE effect into Dubai, India, New Zealand and Australia.

Ocean is a master at finding people’s creative passion and driving that passion to create life changing goals and results both personally and professionally. He believes and has proven how creative expression applies in the 'meditate don't medicate' philosophy of mental health. Endorsed by workplace psychologists, Ocean's process in inspiring creativity has had profound effects in many of his 4000+ authors in which he has shared in the establishment of their creative legacy. Some of the noted authors Ocean has had the pleasure of working with include Emmy and Golden Globe Winning Actor William Shatner, Emmy Award Winning Musician Toni Childs, Best-Selling Author Lindy Chamberlin, Google's #1 Activational Speaker Eric Bailey, Workplace Psychologist Dr Pete Stebbins, Ray White CEO Carey Smith, Best-Selling Author and Medium Jeanette Wilson, Best-Selling Author and Wealth Success Coach Andrew Barsa and Radio DJ and former Channel 7 Newsreader Liam Renton.
