Experience - brief overview of your professional skills

Highly creative, versatile, people person. I'm a lateral thinker and great at solving problems on the fly. I love working with light and set design, also prop building, some sfx makeup. I enjoy communicating with people on set, keeping the ball rolling and helping to facilitate a positive and professional atmosphere.

I've operated cameras at Blues Fest and Splendour in the Grass, lit sets for many student films as well as  award winning short films and a feature length film. I have also directed and assistant directed with Torched Mesa Productions. I see myself as somewhat of a Swiss army knife on set, able to fill most roles and quick to learn.
