Industry Experience

My career spans over 14+ years in the competitive field of post-production, where I’ve honed my skills in video editing and motion graphics.
My work has garnered attention on the global stage, notably being shortlisted for Best Editing at the Shots Awards Asia-Pacific in 2022. This recognition came for my work on commercials that not only challenged creative boundaries but also showcased the potential of storytelling through editing.
I’ve had the privilege of working with some of the biggest brands in the world, including Red Bull, BMW, and Coca-Cola, and have forged strong partnerships with more than 30 production companies and agencies worldwide.
My journey has taken me from the dynamic markets of Dubai and London back to New Zealand, where I’ve recently established my roots in Ohope, Bay of Plenty. Here, I’ve continued to expand a new production company, Cachalot Creative, offering a unique blend of international experience and local market understanding to support the region’s film and production industry.
