Director Biography

My world changed back in 1981 when my dream of working in television production became a reality. I was employed as a sound recordist for News and Current Affairs back in the day when you needed a two man crew to operate big old fashioned clunky gear. The challenge of the catch it as you can and as it happens was the ultimate challenge for me, with no scripts , no second takes and you lived and died by your anticipation of what was going to happen next. In 1992 I was given the opportunity to retrain in cameras and learn how to shoot, this furthered my love of story telling which had now grown from shooting news to making feature length documentaries. Its my passion to tell stories that educate, inspire and motivate my audience.
