I started in 1993 and have twenty years of experience working in the lighting department for the film and television industry. The first eight years I worked for a number of different Gaffers in South Australia and Victoria. From this I have gained a great deal of knowledge and experienced diverse perspectives in the area of lighting.


In 2001 I became Head of Department on The Tracker, my first feature. Since then I have continued working in drama primarily for film and television as well as TVC’s. I look forward to the challenges of each project. Especially establishing a working relationship with the Director of Photography and achieving to the fullest extent the vision that they have for the project.
