First and foremost I am an artist. This is not a career choice or an activity I merely entertain, it is who I am, I am my work. My passion is story telling. I work in many different and sometimes very diverse mediums, but all my work shares a standard of excellence a clear and honest voice and is based on my own idiosyncratic, personal vision of the world.
As a filmmaker I’ve just recently completed my first Feature film ‘Orphan & Kingdoms’ on which I was writer/director. http://orphansandkingdoms.comFunded by the The New Zealand Film Commission. It will be released at the 2014 International Film Festival.
