About Danny

I'm an Australian filmmaker from Melbourne. I started out as an actor and made my move behind the camera at 23 as a writer and then director, writing one-act theatre plays and short films. I have always had a love for the stage and have written 2 plays that have been produced.

My first feature film as writer/director was produced in 2007, titled "Punishment".

I have written on commission and have had screenplays optioned. I have also worked across a number of departments in film and television through the years and have learned a great deal by doing so, but writing is my passion.

Nowadays, the scope of the programme is much wider and only one member of the original families remains in the street. The show reached a watershed in 1997 when the last remaining original character, Helen Daniels, died. The departure of her relatives and arrival of the Scully family marked the start of a new era for Neighbours. There's never a dull moment in Ramsay Street, and despite their many feuds, the residents will always - in the words of the show's theme tune - "be there for one another".
