After graduating in Environmental Science and completing my PADI Divemaster I began teaching Marine Biology in the Caribbean. With access to underwater cameras I developed my passion for filming. I moved to Malaysia to work for Emmy award-winning underwater production company Scubazoo, where I was fortunate enough to dive and film around Malaysia, Indonesia and Timor Leste for three years. Due to filming and editing the same projects I have developed a deep understanding of what is required to build sequences and deliver creative goals.
Through my years of filming in difficult and remote locations with small crews I have developed a strong sense of teamwork and independence, getting the job done regardless of stumbling blocks and solving problems using creative thinking. By working with award winning companies I have had access to, and training on broadcast equipment, allowing me to tell stories in the highest quality possible.
