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.
