Freelance Writer and Director
With a decade-long career within the film, TV, and advertising industries, my breakthrough began when I joined the Walt Disney Company in the USA as a Broadcast and Post Production Specialist. I transitioned into several production roles inclusive of Producing, Production Management, eventually assuming managerial roles as a Post Production Manager and eventually Creative Project Management where I also wrote and directed numerous global ad campaigns for brands like Square, Spotify, Vimeo, and Bailey Nelson.
Outside my 9-5, I dedicated my evenings to honing my craft as a filmmaker. My last short film premiered at the Cannes Short Film Corner, earning recognition with 11 Official Selections and 4 nominations, including a notable nod for 'Best Director of a Short' in 2014.
In 2022, I made the decision to relocate from Melbourne, Australia to London, after being granted a scholarship for a Master's degree in Screenwriting at Met Film School. My feature film and TV pilot submissions have since earned high distinctions.
I am a creative and production all-rounder freelancing between film and advertising as either a Director, Creative Project Manager, or Writer. Crafting high-end visuals and storytelling is my passion and I’m eager to collaborate on both long and short-form content.
