Film & Sound
Specialties: Recording and Production of Classical, Jazz and other forms of acoustic music.
I am a freelance lighting cameraman and editor with 30+ years of TV-industry experience. I have worked on many documentaries, current affair programs, OB broadcast events, ads and marketing videos for internationally renowned TV networks and production houses.
I describe myself as a human alchemist, passionately gathering wisdom as I travel along life’s’ path, placing it in a crucible with as much vulnerability and grace as I can muster and doing all that I can to share the resulting tincture to live a life of joy and purpose.I have run a half marathon amongst wild elephants in Kenya, been kidnapped in India and bogged out the Back of Bourke. I have dined with the Prime Minister and entertained the Duke, but these are not the experiences that have brought me the most joy. For me, the best of life comes in knowing that something I have said or done has helped another to live authentically, with grace and with the ability to connect to the richness of life within and without.With degrees in Industrial Design and Commerce and a career path that has lead me through agripolitics, community development, the arts, running a service station, bioenergy, grazing and agriculture, online retailing and much in between, my journey is now being enhanced through running my own race, in my own lane. Life brings the greatest joy when I am able to inspire others to do the same.
