I’m a videographer, video editor and director/owner of Backyard Films & Video, based in Sydney, Australia.
A graduate of Canberra University, completing a Bachelor of Arts in Professional Writing (Journalism), I have spent a great deal of my working life in newspaper and magazine journalism, working in Canberra, London, Melbourne and Sydney. See my Linked in profile for more detail.
For 18 years I was employed by The Australian newspaper in various roles, including Assistant Foreign News Editor for several years. In 2007 I moved to The Australian’s website to become its first video journalist, establishing a video department able to shoot its own content and figuring out what exactly that content should be.
I now have my own video production business, Backyard Films & Video, specialising in creative, corporate and web video. You’ll find a good selection of Backyard videos on my website. However, a lot of the work I did in 2014 and 2015 was in-house corporate video for American Express and Medicare Local so I’m not able to display that work for the time being.
Now, in 2016, I’m producing a short documentary on albinism in Fiji. The project began when I was asked to travel to Suva last year to film a two-day conference on albinism awareness.
