About / Biography

I’m an emerging filmmaker based in Whakatū Nelson.

My love of film has led me into various production contracts over the last decade and has ultimately fuelled my aspiration to write and direct my own short films.
For me, the most intriguing part of film is how it offers a captivating window into the human mind ⎯ how we think and feel, and why we behave the way we do. I’m particularly interested in developing my ability to carefully depict these nuances in my writing and directing.
For now, I’m embracing all opportunities for creating and learning. Please get in touch!
