Long got into digital advertising after his efforts in long jump fell a little short of expectation. However, he’s been making giant strides ever since. After being granted a 2-year scholarship from the Billy blue College of Design, he went on to complete his BA in Design, and evolve into the digital Art Director responsible for some of his clients most impressive conceptual work. Not only has he picked up back-back-to-back Australian Young Lions awards and represented Australia at the Spike Asia digital competition, he’s also featured at The One Show, Spikes Asia, Epica Awards, IAB Creative Showcase and FWA.
He loves his daughter Ari, speaks Vietnamese, plays tennis and once upon a time a torch bearer for the 2000 Olympic games.
