What I have been up to

It has been a really busy time. I have had the great pleasure of working with some great people on some terrific projects

Recently I have worked as D.O.P. on House Husband Season 5 for Playmaker/Channel Nine, Upper Middle Bogan for Gristmil/ABC, Here Come The Habibs for Jungle/Channel Nine, Little Lunch for Gristmil/ABC and The EX-PM for CJZ Productions/ABC. I also have been working on a Documentary for Blind Indigenous musician and singer Gurrumul which is in post production currently.


New Showreel Coming Soon

I’ve been very busy over the past few years which has meant that I haven’t been able to update my showreel. I hope to have it here for you soon.

If you can’t wait for the new showreel and would like to see my current work please contact me.



My Past

Some may call it a CV. For me it’s all just great memories.

I started Freelance in 1991 and quickly tired of working as a Runner which led me to become a Grip for six years. After realising my true passion was for creating imagery I side stepped into the Camera Department where I worked as a Focus Puller for over a decade. After learning from the greats of Australian Cinematography I began operating on many projects and finally arrived where I am today. A working Director of Photography.
