I have a Multimedia degree and was involved both in front and behind the camera over many years.

In 2014 I made my first short film "Recession" (see attached clip) which I wrote, produced, directed and acted in. It was screened as part of the Sydney Fringe festival. In 2017 I co-wrote and directed a web series "The Wild Orchards" for which I received a LAWEB 2018 Creative Director in Drama Series nomination. Early 2018 I produced and directed a short film "Last Swing" based on a play that made it through successfully to the Gala final of the Short+Sweet Festival Sydney 2017.
