Originally from the rugged island of Tasmania, I've always had a love for the outdoors. Over the years I've spent a fair bit of time volunteering and campaigning for environmental causes and I'd say that protecting nature is my main passion.

I'm lucky to have seen a fair bit of our beautiful planet. I love traveling to remote places and I'm fascinated by people and culture, differences and sameness.

Since graduating university, I've been working in the film industry and I feel very privileged to be able to help tell people's stories.

I believe documentaries have the ability to make people connect more comprehensively with an issue and therefore can empower us engage with democracy and fight for a better world.
