in a larger nutshell
I consider myself a storyteller - I’m a photographer / screen writer / filmmaker originally hailing from Avalon in the Northern Beaches of Sydney, Australia. My Urban Landscapes and Candid Portraits series have been exhibited both in Australia and the United States, as well as featured in such publications as Semi Permanent.
As a photographer I always saw a story in each image captured but still desired to be able to visually express my written stories... The first taste of trying to combine these two elements came in a fictional mini photo series 'Neon Nights' (2015) which was shot on expired film in New York. Filmmaking was stumbled upon after this and as a self taught filmmaker I draw on my background of photography and acting, utilising character based storytelling and observational comedy - often highlighting the ridiculousness of everyday life.
Recent short film highlights include The Wave which was my directorial debut that found success as a Finalist at Short+Sweet Film Festival in Sydney and screened at LA Comedy Fest amongst other International festivals. It is signed to US based Hewes Pictures and available on Amazon Prime Video.
I’m currently working on my first feature screenplay as well as developing two short films so I look forward to updating you soon on these projects.
