I am a film writer and director based in Brisbane, Australia. I received my Bachelor of Visual Arts in Film & Television Production degree from Griffith University and have since gone on to write and direct several award winning short films. My focus is now on feature films with the science fiction drama ‘1’ now in pre-production.
After obtaining a Bachelor of Visual Arts in Film and Television Production from Griffith University, I went on to work in commercial television on such shows as ‘The Great South East’ and ‘Big Brother’. My writing and directing credits include the funded short films ‘Nine Miles Beautiful’, ‘Falling’, ‘True Love’, ‘Ink’, ‘The Housewife’ and ‘Black Betty’.
‘True Love’ won several industry awards including the Kinetone Award for Best Film at the Queensland New Filmmakers Awards, a part of the Brisbane International Film Festival. I was also nominated for Best Director and Best Emerging Talent. The film has since won the Best Film Award at the NYC Picture Start Film Festival in New York City. ‘True Love’ was paired with the 2013 Academy Award winning short film ‘Curfew’ for broadcast on KQED Television in the United States.
I also won the Best Director award at the 2012 Shorts in Paradise Film Festival on the Gold Coast for ‘True Love’. In addition the film won the Best Film award at the same festival.
‘Nine Miles Beautiful’ won several awards including the People’s Choice Award at the Mudfest Film Festival and the Audience Favourite Award at the Brisbane International Film Festival, as well as the People’s Choice Award at the Bondi Film Festival.
