My passion for film and TV has informed a lifetime of experience across a variety of mediums. I began my production career over twenty years ago focusing on the craft of editing and design. This is where I honed my skills, mentored by industry professionals and created many award winning commercial campaigns.

In 2004, I started the highly respected PostBox Studios in Sydney and focused predominantly on post-production. As the industry evolved, I followed suit and transitioned into Producing and Directing. My credits span across documentaries, television series and films. In 2016, I was fortunate enough to tour the world with my directing debut feature length documentary “Zach’s Ceremony” which represents the culmination of many years of industry experience and enthusiasm for filmmaking and storytelling. We were honoured with multiple festival awards before late in 2017, we received an AACTA nomination for Best Documentary and an Australian Directors Guild (ADG) nomination for Best Director.
