Recently I've immigrated from New Zealand, where I was a Documentary and TV Camera Assistant. Traveling became my forte and I am now happily living London, looking for new opportunities and experiences. I became known in New Zealand for my positive and hardworking attitude.


Focus Puller

I've been focus pulling on several music videos, commercials and a short film. Being so much more involved in a shot going well has been an extremely rewarding experience. My Focus Pulling credits include Maori TV - Summer 2020 Commercial, Mo Muse - "Frenemies" ft. Sol music video, Terrible Sons - "Please" music video, Albi & The Wolves - "Story" music video.

Camera Operator - Documentary

I was 2nd Camera under Dominic Fryer on David Farrier's latest Feature Documentary, TBR Late 2020

Camera Assistant - Documentary and Television

I've worked solely as a Freelancer in the New Zealand Film and TV industry. I've travelled around the UK and Europe on "The Story of Rugby" (Amazon Prime), and all over the Pacific Islands on a regional reality cooking show. More recently, I was on the Lord of the Rings Amazon series as a Behind the Scenes camera assistant, getting to work with and film the whole production, until the first Covid 19 outbreak halted production. I've also been around New Zealand on shows like "Coast NZ" and several reality TV shows.
