I have always been a storyteller for as long as I can remember and it was from a very early age when I recognized storytelling in film. Since then I have strived to work in the challenging but rewarding film industry. After 5 years of experience in college and university working on short films, I feel that I am ready to open the door and walk on through.

Over the years gone by I have directed my passion of storytelling to scriptwriting. There is nothing quite like creating fantastical worlds, filling them with empathetic characters and then stringing the two together in a challenging but entertaining narrative. The end goal for me is to become a full-time writer, and seeing these stories come to life on screen big and small.

But I can’t help but be attached to the other aspects of filmmaking. Directing a powerful scene with a talented cast and crew. Creating engaging soundscapes in sound studios. Although a scriptwriter at heart, I never want to let go of being a filmmaker.

My main interests lie in the realms of films, video games and music. Those are probably the three things that make me who I am. Apart from those mediums, another thing that keeps me alive is people. Every job role I’ve had involves working with other people. I am addicted to getting to know new and interesting characters in life. I am the type of person who goes out on their own to simply meet new people and listen to what stories they have to tell. I recognize that life is all about the ups and downs and adventures it throws at us. All I want to do is relish in it all.
