ABOUT
I’ve been fortunate to enjoy a career in film production for the past 25 years,
over that time many films that I've been involved in have been broadcast on ABC, SBS and NITV. Sometimes working as both director of photography and editor on the same film. They have also screened at national and international film festivals winning many awards.
