“Amazing job. I am so blown-away and impressed with your skills. Incredible! Damn you make us look good! Thank you, thank you. thank you!”
(Kara Martin-Beijer • Vice President of Corporate Marketing Communications, Grass Valley)

With 16 years professional industry experience, I’ve worked in lead creative and technical roles for production facilities in Australia and the United Kingdom.

I’ve completed high-profile work for some of the world’s best-known and most respected brands, specialising in digital signage and product promos.

Through a desire to constantly learn new techniques and push my own boundaries, I’ve been able to continually develop my skillset, which has resulted in an expansive body of work that I am extremely proud of.

Because of my outward enthusiasm towards the craft, and a deep understanding of the technology used, I’m regularly sought after for training, beta testing, technical support and advice.

I continually strive for excellence and complete client satisfaction in every project, regardless of profile, scale or budget.

Work Experience

Freelance / Consultant

Motion & Sound Designer, Video/Audio Editor

Going solo afforded me the opportunity to get hands-on with every phase of the production process, from initial concept to final output. And with the proliferation of digital signage, I’ve been able to explore trending techniques and deliver larger-than-4K animation via client work.

Editor & Graphics Designer

A working holiday in the UK provided me with the ability to sharpen my editing and motion graphics skills in a completely new environment, while at the same time further expanding my network of contacts. An added bonus: meeting music video directors I have admired from afar.
