About me
Tim is a passionate director/videographer/editor/musician/photographer who got hooked on creating stories when he made his first (very) amateur feature film back in high school. Immediately following a Bachelor in Communications (Media Arts and Productions) at UTS, he was brought into the world of MTV. There he worked a variety of jobs, primarily editing and shooting, before eventually becoming a Producer and working on news, live music, branded content and reality series. Since leaving MTV, he has shot on two long-form television series (Greeks of the Sea, A Model Adventure), before expanding into the world of advertising, working with BMF in their content department across shooting, editing and motion across branded content and TVC’s. The ad-world was put on hold to DOP two seasons of Unplanned America, before returning back to Australia as a freelancer. His diverse background spanning over 10 years of news, documentary, live music, music video, travel/tourism, TVC and branded content proves adaptability to any project, with a focus on directing, editing, shooting and motion, while always building up great relationships with clients to achieve the best possible results. Recently, he has just returned from a 2.5 year stint living and working in London and Amsterdam for multiple world renowned clients such as Nike, Google, Barclays Premiere League, Vice, LADbible, SPORTbible, including writing, co-directing and editing on a Cannes Grand Prix winning campaign. Clients include Netflix, MTV, VIACOM, VICE, LADBible, SPORTbible, BMF, Candid Projects, Ensemble, Channel V, Foxtel Music, MCN, RGA, Emotive, Agile, Men At Work, Authentic, No Roles For Sam, Toll Helicopters, Mushroom Music, Freemantle Media, Channel 7, Channel 10, Destination NSW, South Africa Tourism, Nat Geo People, SBS, SBS 2.

The situation has reached such epidemic proportions that it is predicted that by 2050, there will be more plastic in our oceans than fish. Against this backdrop, LADbible Group and creative agency AMV BBDO launched The Trash Isles, a major social responsibility campaign to empower young people to lobby the United Nations to acknowledge the p
