I'm a cameraman and documentary filmmaker with over 25 years experience, starting in news and current affairs at the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. After the ABC I freelanced in the tv magazine format, children's tv, corporate and advertising.

 

From the mid 1990s, I focused on documentary, working extensively in Australia, Europe and Thailand, with broadcasters including ABC, SBS, Ch10, Ch 7, Ch 9, France 5, ARTE and others.

 

Documentary projects that I generate typically deal with people helping wildlife or social issues. I'm partial to the odd adventure especially in wilderness areas, as well as topics exploring society and science. I received a BANFF Rockie award for Ted's Evolution in 2003 which focused on the politics of scientific discoveries.
