About me

I am an experienced Director with strong cinematic sensibilities and an instinctive ear for music - qualities that distinguish my voice as a filmmaker. As a proficient director, editor and camera operator, I have worked on a range of projects from commercials to short films and music videos. Growing up in New Zealand, I developed an interest in moving image from an early age. Equipped with a Handycam and a group of friends, what started as a hobby ended up becoming a real passion and career. After studying film, I worked further on my craft through shadowing some of Australasia’s highly regarded commercial Directors and leading significant projects of my own. Notable projects include winning 100k in funding from national broadcaster TVNZ and NZ On Air as part of their 'New Blood' web series competition, enabling me to create the complete series based on my own script.
