I am a cinematographer and filmmaker living in Aotearoa specialising in music videos and short films, some of which have won awards and played in festivals around the world. I have gained industry experience crewing on large scale blockbusters; such as the Avatar sequels, the Lord of the Rings series and numerous independent New Zealand feature films.
I initially signed up for the Pinnacle Programme as a way to push my limits as a young person and go deeper into my passion. Along the way, I met some extremely talented individuals and creatives, and it pushed my need to go further and further. Each individual stage of the programme taught me new lessons that have helped shape the person I am today; becoming deeply confident in myself and my abilities, learning strong communication as a leader, and kaitiakitanga for the whenua and the land that I inhabit.
