I am a film maker with 14 years experience. My portfolio includes documentaries, community film projects, commercial work and feature films. My experience is broad, I have worked in all states of Australia and extensively in Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Myanmar and Nepal. I am an advocate of Human Rights which is the subject of many of my documentaries.

My unobtrusiveness quickly develops trust in any environment and enables him to get to the core of the issue and the hearts of the people involved. My films have been broadcast nationally, shown on the big screens both in Australia and overseas. My considerable experience includes all aspects of the film making process.
