I have just completed 6 months work on STRUGGLE STREET, a 3x1hr ob doc series for SBS TV. I was responsible for sourcing contributors and capturing their life on camera. It will broadcast in 2015.

I began my career in London in 1999 where I worked as a Prod Assistant on the ITV drama series POIROT (2 x 2hr) for Carnival Films.

Returning to Sydney, I worked for 4 yrs at Crackerjack Productions in the role of Editor, which included 3 seasons of sketch comedy series COMEDY INC (over 40hrs of TV) for Ch 9.

As an independent I have shot and directed the travel series INSIDE INDIA and a 1hr doco about the heavy metal music culture in Finland, THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT METAL, which won the Silver Palm Award at the 2009 Mexico International Film Festival.

In 2010 I shot the 30 min doco IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE which screened on German TV network ZDFneo.

In 2011 I was cinematographer on the short film JULIAN which has won many awards including the Crystal Bear at Berlinale and the AACTA Award for Best Short.

Short film RAVI & JANE (2013), written & directed by me, has won awards in India and the USA and has screened at more than 30 international film festivals, including TIFF Kids (Canada) & Edinburgh (UK).

More recently I spent 3 weeks in Beijing shooting the observational doco A TALE OF TWO CITIES for Wildbear Entertainment & Beijing TV.

Over the years I have also produced video content for many well known international companies and brands.

I hold a BA in TV Production from CSU (1997) and a Post Grad Dip in Journalism from UTS (2007).
