While primarily a narrative filmmaker, I enjoy telling all kinds of stories from writing prose to directing music videos.
Through my years spent training in the writing and directing of film at university and shooting and editing videos for clients such as L'Oreal and Cure Kids, I've learned that an effective video is born out of the careful selection and prioritisation of information, coupled with compelling visuals that demand attention. In combination with the producing and project management skills I have acquired, this approach allows me to oversee the creation of an outstanding video from initial inception to final release.
When it comes to my own work, I enjoy telling gripping horror thriller stories that contain strong characters and mystery at their centre, as well as tales that capture the drama of real life. In 2019, my honours dissertation short film, a thriller entitled One Hundred and Twenty Seconds, was selected for the Show Me Shorts Film Festival, New Zealand's premier and only Oscar® qualifying short film festival. In the same year, my best friend and I received funding under Chillbox Creative's ChillDocs initiative to make a short documentary, Her Beneath Her, which tells the story of female drag queens trying to make it in a male-dominated industry.
I have loved further exploring my creativity through making highly artistic music videos for artists such as Cut Off Your Hands, and directing compelling campaign pieces for groups such as the World Wildlife Fund. It is my dream to continue collaborating with extraordinary artists to produce exceptional music videos that bring their lyrical vision to life, as well as work with more world-changing brands and charities to tell their important stories.
I care deeply about each and every project I work on. Whenever I get the privilege to collaborate with an individual or an organisation, I make it my mission to provide the best platform for their voice by drawing upon not only my skills in the craft of cinematic storytelling, but my ability to truly listen to what they have to say.
