Filmmaker, Teacher, designer

As a passionate filmmaker for fifteen years, I've enjoyed working on a variation of projects, ranging from short films, Tv productions, Documentaries and Special effects projects.

I also spent eleven of those teaching the skill s that I had developed to TAFE students, the subjects that I taught were 3d Animation and Special effects, Video Production and project management.

Other activities I enjoy are design work with the use of CAD software. My past jobs include 3d design of motorcycles for BRAAAP motorcycles.

I'm looking forward to sharing my skills and past experience with a new frontier of students, and help them to develop their own skills.
