About me
A career of images is hard to express in words... I am a lover of light, colour, movement and partial to darkness too. My career has been as versatile in style as it has been in genre, my passion for narrative-driven composition and lighting extends through my drama, documentary and commercial work. Spanning BBC TV drama, feature documentaries, narrative feature films, music videos and a truckload of commercial work, I bring my all to every project. I am a true believer in the collaboration of film, creating supportive dialogue and asking of all departments - what do we want to feel here? Originally from Australia, I have settled in the U.K. and am always looking to connect with up and coming directors/ producers any side of the globe. I am creative and passionate about the work I deliver, so don't hesitate to get in touch to see more, ask questions or meet up.

    I was commissioned by the TATE to direct and edit this short film ahead of their exhibition of Aubrey Beardsley’s work. Curator Stephen Calloway and drag performer Holly James Johnston sit down to tea to discuss the ‘dos and don’ts’ of dandyism according to artist Aubrey Beardsley. Beardsley shocked and delighted Victorian London with his black and white drawings. In fact, the 1890s even became known in some circles as the ‘Beardsley Period’. At the centre of this decadent world was the ‘dandy
