but it all began in 2003 ...

Most filmmakers want to hide their first ever films (especially high school projects!) and I was no exception until I edited my 15-year-old self out of this one.

I'm actually very honoured to have made 'Homeland'.

It garnered a few small honours in the 2004 Queensland New Filmmakers Awards and the 2005 Cairns Youth Film Festival. But most importantly, it lit a fire inside me to tell stories that has never extinguished.

I share it with you here as a significant part of my history.

He is currently available for freelance projects.
