I'm a jack of many trades and my passion is helping people get the ideas in their head into reality. I studied at South Seas Film School and then worked on an afternoon kids TV show for two years as a field and studio camera operator, which sent me headfirst into crowds of kids, celebrities, lions, jetboats, water, snow, mud, and then I went on to sports and broadcasting which sometimes involved mud as well.

These days I still do a lot of camera operating gigs but also run my own small business as more of an all-encompassing storyteller and work on video assets for businesses. Doing a lot more in the way of conception and creative direction of projects, and helping people solve problems, although my storyboards are little more than stick figures with evidence of substantial eraser application.

I own a Sony FS5 kit with a selection of lenses, a Ronin M gimbal, SmallHD monitor, a collection of sound gear, a teleprompter, and a Mavic Pro drone. I also own a GH4 which is such a cool little camera I just can't let it go (sentimental, I know), and it occasionally comes in useful for projects too. When I edit I use a well equipped workstation with Adobe CC suite and Davinci Resolve.
