I draw inspiration from the old masters of cinematography, and combine this knowledge with modern approaches. My focus is, and always will be, on the best way to tell a story. My creative journey began with pen in hand, and psychological realism is my native writing style. I am a published author, with my 2nd novel due for release in 2017. It was my literary journey that led me to film, as I questioned how I could express my fictional worlds in a visual format. Recognising film as my answer, I now hold a Bachelor of Film Production + Certificate IV in Training & Assessment. As the Creative Director of Gothic Zen Studios, I spend my days finding ways to incorporate emotive storytelling into each of my productions.
One of my simple joys is sipping black percolated coffee and watching a sunrise, preferably in old gothic surroundings of Eastern Europe. I have a great fondness towards animals, especially British bulldogs, owls and anything else that looks interesting to touch and film.
