I first picked up a video camera at age 9 to start making new installments of the Bond Franchise. Sadly they didn’t quite make the box office but I did catch the filmmaking bug. A few years went by and I continued making films, loving it more and more every year.
When I was 14, I won my first filmmaking award and was over the moon. At that stage I was determined to make at least three shorts a year and I knew then what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. Straight after graduating from Saint Kentigern College in 2009 I started work as a camera operator filming extreme sports for Red Bull, Mizone, Nissan, Hyundai, and Billabong with lots of the content being screened on Sky Sports. A year later
I moved to England to work on Resistance, a feature film starring Andrea Riseborough (Oblivion, Welcome to the Punch) and Michael Sheen (Frost / Nixon, Underworld). For this I shot, scripted and directed mini documentaries charting the whole movie process from production to post. I’ve continued to do this on a variety of films including My Brother the devil which won best cinematography at the Sundance film competition and Jadoo who’s crew included Roger Pratt (Cinematographer on ’12 Monkey’s', ‘Troy’, Harry Potter’), Gareth Tandy (worked on the original Superman movie, Indiana Jones and Star Wars) and Oscar winning composer Stephen Warbeck (Shakespeare in Love).
Since moving to England I’ve been directing commercials, music videos, documentaries and short films. As well as England my work has also taken me to countries such as Qatar, Norway and France – I love traveling, working with talented and inspiring people and it’s a dream come true being able to do this on a daily bases.
I’ve just finished making my latest short ‘Modern Man’ which was shot by cinematographer Dale McCready (‘Merlin’, ‘Doctor Who)’ and stunt coordinated by Dani Biernat (‘Skyfall’, ‘Shaun of the Dead’). It was an amazing experience bringing the film to life and it’s had a great response from both industry professionals and the general public.
