Ever since I was a child I could draw and explore the world by pulling things apart and put them back together again. I found innovative ways to use alternative tools to create and repair whatever craft I was getting into.
Looking for a creative outlet I studied design at Billy Blue School of Graphic Arts and graduated from Swinbourne University with a Bachelor of Design degree in 2003. This was shortly followed by starting my career as a Graphic Designer with Gispac a retail packaging supplier.
After searching for a new environment to continue my development. I joined Three Bears Media in 2006 as a Multimedia Designer, and I developed sharp skills in graphic design, photography, web development, video production and post production. Many projects required flying to locations all around Australia and overseas.
I joined the Australian Cinematographers Society in 2008 and began to offer my talents as a freelance cinematographer.
In 2010, I had the opportunity a setup a new onset department at Frame Set & Match, here I operated as a Digital Imaging Technician, Data Wrangler or Stereographer. I was able to experience the best of both worlds, by working onset and in post production. I learned how to colour grade with systems such as Baselight and Davinci Resolve, use systems from Codex Digital, and move humongous amounts of data.
I have worked as a DIT on dozens of TV commercials and on the following feature length projects: Goddess, Not Suitable For Children, Devil’s Dust, Wolf Creek II, Strangerland, Manny Lewis, Ali’s Wedding, Dance Academy, Liebe, and Riot.
Over the past ten years I have shot, lit, coloured and edited a considerable amount of projects. Some of the highlights include being the second unit DOP on the eye blazing zombie apocalypse ‘Wormwood’, working on the feature ‘Liebe’ as the A Camera Operator for Don McAlpine ACS ASC. And recently shooting my first feature 'Crystal Children'.
