    "I was absorbed as a child. I can remember my walls were covered with movie posters, Verhoeven’s Robocop plastered right above my bed. It was many VHS tapes later though, in my teenage years, that I discovered the cinema. I loved the dark, anonymous companionship only found in the cinema and I was being whisked away with the optimistic tail end of the American New Wave to be brought up on their Indie movement through my High School days.

     

    The experience as a young teenager on the set of the big-budget mini-series, Moby Dick and then Noah’s Arc (in 1996) only enhanced the magic of the movies. I was a tourist on those sets, able to sneak in while my step-father worked in the Art Department.

     

    After a brief stint studying Graphic Design where I had fallen in love with photography, I decided to leave my drawings behind and pursue my pipe-dream interests in moving pictures. It was here in my early 20’s that I realised I could actually have a career in the Film Industry.

     

    I opted for a technical Film & TV Diploma at NMIT in 2002. The practical nature of the course allowed opportunity to learn a broad base to begin freelancing as a Camera Operator and Editor. Welcome to the early days of HD! I tried everything and anything back then but always found myself coming back to the camera.

     

    By 2007 Ceon Media was born and I had begun taking on corporate clients, creating web videos and short documentaries. But this work was far from the world of narrative cinema that I had always wanted to be a part of. Persistence finally paid off, and I was given an opportunity to work in Drama. Under veteran Gaffer, Con Mancuso, I worked within the lighting department on the ABC series, Carla Cametti PD. The series was being shot by Leilani Hannah ACS on the Panavision Genesis. This was the first modular camera I’d ever seen and I immediately knew that despite having 5 years behind me at this point, my journey had just begun all over again.

     

    In the following 5 years, I worked primarily within the lighting department on many Films and TV series around Australia, with numerous TVCs littered throughout. A number of years were also spent teaching Digital Storytelling in the remote Kimberley region of Western Australia. During which, I continued to earn my way as a freelance photographer, camera operator and editor. Towards the end of this period I found that my interests had shifted beyond the technical, to the language of storytelling. In particular, the visual vocabulary that whisked me away unknowingly as a kid. Although I had always loved the camera, I was now appreciating the craft more and could start moving towards Cinematography.

     

    In late 2012 I returned to Melbourne with the intention of pursuing more camera-work, whilst continuing to keep current on the larger jobs from the lighting department. Over the following years my work had skewed to be primarily behind the camera.

     

    The road to above-the-line ‘professionalism’ in the industry is a long and arduous road, and there will always be much more to learn. I've found Cinematography through many intersecting interests and my passion has developed in a very organic way. I’m no stranger to the chase and have worked under enough silver-topped DOPs to know the fun is far from over."
