    About me

    My fascination with the Media Industry began back when I was a child, with my parents love for classic films such as Star Wars, ET and Back to the Future. However my PASSION for film really developed once I directed (and awkwardly starred) in a 6 minute heist movie for my Media Studies class. Ever since that moment I cannot see a future without me following this ambition. I want to be able to use Film/Television/Advertising to inspire people, challenge perceptions, encourage excitement for the visual arts and give a whole new generation the kinds of inspirations that I had growing up.
