This is what I do:

I write and direct films


These are some words about me:

I'm an Australian Writer and Director based in Portland, Oregon. I fell into filmmaking accidentally as a teenager. This proved to be emblematic of the stories I would one day create. I wrote and directed a live action short film in 2018 called The Fish Out of Water. It won the Audience Choice Award at its World Premiere at Manchester International Film Festival in March 2019. Currently I am in pre production on my next short film and in development on my first feature film script while I continue to perpetuate the so-called-wonderful-accident I find myself in. 


These are some clients I’ve worked with: 

Facebook, Nike, Lyft, Oregon Beavers, Portland Timbers, Marmoset, Push x Pull Coffee


These are some artists/bands I’ve worked with: 

Rogue Wave, Blitzen Trapper, Frankie Simone, Y La Bamba, Ohana Bam, Matthew Logan Vasquez (from Delta Spirit), Bryan John Appleby, Jose Medeles (from The Breeders), Ural Thomas and the Pain, Sol Rising, Magic Sword, Munnycat


This is where my work has been published:

Billboard, Paste Magazine, Portland Monthly Magazine, OPB, Red Bull, Uncrate, Portland Mercury, Design Sponge, Fubiz, Swiss Miss


These are some more words about me:

People usually ask what part of England I'm from. I reply, "Australia". Because that's where I'm from. I was born in Sydney and grew up in Brisbane. Sometime after that I lost my way in the desert and eventually found my way out. Today I live in Portland, Oregon amongst the tall trees and wayward comrades. I try my best to enjoy life with my lovely wife, Michele and golden retriever, Hank. We spend our days learning how to have fun and make the most of life.


Aside from making films and writing stuff down, I play drums, eat chips and salsa whenever possible, enjoy scotch a little too much, and suffer intense mood swings because of Manchester United.

Lastly, there are a few things I treasure more than people truly being themselves: vulnerable, exposed, revealing insecurities; and finding the humor and joy in being just that. That is a human, truly living life. Also, I once ran a mile.
