I'm a Multiplatform Producer & Filmmaker based in Brisbane & Sydney. I create stories across all platforms with a particular interest in doco, drama and utilizing innovative digital & social technology.

I have a BA in Multimedia from Macquarie University, Honors in Radio Broadcasting from Swinburne University, an Advanced Diploma in Multiplatform Producing (Scholarship Metro Screen) and was awarded Screen NSW’s Slingshot Grant (2010). Last year, I was awarded SPAA's Ones To Watch.

Before Multiplatform Producing, I worked as a journalist in the radio industry and as a Digital Producer for the White Agency in Sydney. In 2010, I worked as Multiplatform Producer for documentaries Storm Surfers and Rocket Compulsion for Discovery Channel, along with Firelight Production’s slate of projects. During this time, I was invited to present at the DICON conference on Multiplatform storytelling. Other projects from that period include film and digital projects with community media organisations Desert Pea Media and Producer & Sound Designer for the short film, I SPY (Screen NSW 2011, Cockatoo Island & St Kilda). In 2012, I worked with The Nest across their projects as Multiplatform Producer including the Summer of the 17th Doll iPad App and Art Month's digital platforms and a web series.

I recently completed a contract with Hoodlum working as a Multiplatform Producer across their slate of digital and film projects. Including innovative multiplatform drama Secrets & Lies for Channel Ten and a six part web series titled Rogue Tales for James Squire.

As well as freelancing on various digital and film projects, I also co-direct a mulitplatform doco - This City Speaks which launches its website this year with a series of video portraits from Melbourne.
