Career Summary

My Career started in 2012 but it was only small tastes of what I would later realise was my life's ambition. I completed study in 2015 and only managed to purchase my own kit late 2017. Since then, my career has exploded. While previous years had seen short film projects perform well (always short-listed, always top 10) it was Tropfest 2018 that allowed me to work on a winner. I completed my first feature film and have since added dozens more to my filmography. I have worked with brands such Porsche, Mercedes, Tiktok, Sportsbet and Lite 'n' Easy within the Advertising space, I have been the recording engineer for The Melbourne International Comedy Festival for the last 3 years running, and I continue to work on narrative series in the form of Features, TV series and Webseries when I am able.
