Contact Details




I am originally from Canada, but have lived overseas in many different countries as an adult before settling in NZ. I love discovering new things, exploring new places and meeting new people!
I love telling meaningful stories, either documentary or narrative. I feel the medium of film is one of the most powerful culture shaping tools available in this day and age. Stories matter in every culture and language and film is such a beautiful way to capture them!
I’m 40 years old and have been working full time in film since 2021. I feel my life experience adds significantly to my skills as a filmmaker.
I love the collaborative environment on a film set, I’m a great team player and a very quick learner.

Industry Experience

I took an online film course in 2020 and since have mostly worked in the music video, commercial advertisement and corporate video production space. I’ve worked on projects for brands such as Gilmours, Waste Management, Shine TV and Fisher and Paykel.
I’ve worked mostly as a production assistant, gaffer and assistant camera on set with small 3 person crews up to large multi departmental TV commercial crews.
I’ve written, produced, and directed a short film.
I’ve been the DoP on two short films.
I’ve also been a boom operator for short films and Presenter ads.
