About me

In Sydney, where i'm from, I made multiple film and video works as a student at SCA. Originally interested in film as a raw visual medium, i made video pieces that focused on montage and simple subject matters, then became more interested in making short fiction drama and documentary films as my studies progressed. For the past three years this has been my focus, although i continue to make montage-based music videos and video art pieces. I also use photography as a tool to explore imagery and topics that inform my films. Since arriving in London in jan 2017 i've worked on a couple of sets as a runner and am currently working as an editor on some artists' video projects.

  • The Screen Art course at SCA allows students to explore film and video as broadly as they please. The course is largely weighted by art and critical theory, so a lot of essay writing was involved while we made one major practical piece per semester. In the honours year, one project is undertook - a practical work to be exhibited at the end of the year, criticised by professors in conjunction with a research paper or dissertation. I made a 50 minute narrative drama, and wrote a paper on DIY cinema in the Digital Age.
