Experience - brief overview of your professional skills

I have over 15 years experience in documentary production. In addition to cinematography and field producing, I have also worked in various positions from field logistic support, photography and sound recording. I am experienced in producing material for both web/multimedia and standard broadcast.

I am an extreme environment specialist, from the tropics to the polar regions, with a solid guiding and expedition background. I am used to working unsupported in remote areas, both topside and underwater.

Most of my work has been in natural history (BBC NHU, Nat Geo), science, various human documentaries (Nat Geo. ABC, SBS), conservation and educational programs. Specific recent camera experience includes remotely controlled cameras, stabilized systems and drones. I am a CASA licenced drone pilot.
