I am a passionate, eager and hardworking member of the camera and lighting team. As a graduate of south seas film school specialising in camera lighting and audio, I look to continue developing my skills in the camera and lighting departments. Creativity is what keeps me motivated every day and there is something about evoking emotion and telling a story through compelling imagery that gets me excited and inspired to do more. I believe that so much can be said through a single frame and my ability to read a story and create imagery that helps enhance the narrative makes me a valuable team member. My instinctive ability to get the right shot in a fast passed environment along with my passion for real and raw stories means that I sway more towards documentary and factual television but I also love the perfection and amazing team environment you get on a drama set.
