I am a storyteller speaking through writing, photography, and video (though my university degree is cinema production—so I welcome any opportunity to haul out the big stuff). I have international cross-cultural experience (no embarrassing client relations in Asia; a proven record of avoiding international incidents). I’ve worked everywhere from the interior of aircraft hangers to live orchestral performances to freezing exposed mountain passes to surgical suites in the Congo to the hyperghetto (not all in the same day). I’m rather quiet and have not once shouted at a client (neither do clients usually shout at me). My favourite poet is Edwin Arlington Robinson; my favourite author is debatable. I’m not excited by trendy techniques but by simple tools used well (I favour "old style” mechanical film cameras, though I’ve used everything from "top of the food chain" digital to pocket point and shoot). My first word as a child was “light” (really).
For the past several years I've made my living by producing short documentary and promotional pieces for non-profits and educational institutions. I'm now migrating away from that slightly and working more with words and ideas (however, I'm still open to picking up a camera).
I am the Digital Media Producer for the New South Wales Teachers Federation in Sydney, Australia. The Federation is the trade union for public school teachers in NSW; I am also a member of the Media, Entertainment and Arts Alliance.
From October 2006 till late Summer 2007 I was in the Czech Republic acting as European Communications Coordinator for BuildaBridge International; BI is non-profit based in Philadelphia that uses the arts to enrich the lives of people in the world's most difficult situations.
I lived in Scotland for two years pursuing a postgraduate degree in Human Ecology at the University of Strathclyde and working with a wind energy company--till the UK made some unfortunate alterations to its visa regulation; and then...
I was involved in a fantastically awful auto accident. I am still unfolding the meaning and consequence of this incident.
