About

Full disclosure: I started out as an actor. But don't let that stop you from reading on. You may even recognise me (but you probably won’t) from a short stint on Neighbours where I played Dr Karl Kennedy's drummer in his band The Right Prescription.

Unsurprisingly, there wasn't a lot of work out there for a fledgling actor, so I started producing and directing my own work across film and theatre. The more stuff I made, the more I loved making it.

Pretty soon, the passion for being in front of the camera gave way to a thirst for the making of all of this stuff, so I set out to make as much of it as I could.

With a double degree in Theatre Arts and Marketing and Communications, I enjoyed a two year stint with entertainment agency AKA, running marketing campaigns for large scale theatre productions such as the Australian touring productions of Les Miserables and Strictly Ballroom. It was here that I also began producing and directing commercial video content across Broadcast Television and Online.

I then moved onto a role as Content Producer / Digital Strategist at boutique creative agency, Paper Moose. At Paper Moose, I produced and directed content for Vivid (DNSW), Universal Music, Spotify, Mishka Vodka, EPA, TEDx and City Of Sydney

After two years at Paper Moose, I was employed as a Producer with Big Red Group where I produced large scale digital and video content for Coles including the full creative rollout of the infamous Little Shop campaign.

I then started in the position of Senior Producer at The Brand Agency working across Broadcast and Online content for clients including one of Australia’s favourite brands Bunnings Warehouse.

Away from the world of film, I work as a freelance theatre director with credits including Bright Star, RENT, First Date, John & Jen and Next to Normal.

I’m the proud co-founder of two local independent theatre companies; the Green Room Award nominated Pursued by Bear and Hucklebuck Productions.
