Career Summary

After earning a degree in Humanities and working for my University’s film department, I interned at PASTE magazine to hone my production and editing skills. From there I worked on a series of feature documentaries, before transitioning into narrative film and television. Starting in 2014 I wrote and directed four short films, the latest of which was a futuristic zombie film set in Melbourne, 2021. I’ve recently been director-for-hire on two short films and seven web series episodes from two different web series. I am a highly motivated director and showrunner with real world experience in film, TV series, documentary, and reality television. I thrive under pressure, enjoy responsibility, pride myself on my capacity to work well with others, and have a reputation among those I work with for getting things done. I’m passionate about the art of visual storytelling and the principles and techniques which drive it.
