Throughout my career I have been responsible for all aspects of production from concept to completion and given the broad scope of my background I am equally at home in the boardroom, on the set or in the editing suite.

I started my career working for Prime and Capital TV Wollongong following deregulation in 1989 cable running for basketball and football games at the Snake-Pit and Steeler's Stadium. 

During the 90’s I produced and directed a range of VFX intensive TVCs for clients including GIO, Streets Ice Cream, Pizza Hut, Coca Cola and Village Roadshow as well as managing bookings for the post suites and studio facilities maintaining and developing relationships with clients both new and existing.


Between 2000 - 2003 I began work at Energee Entertainment as a compositor / editor and was later involved in the development of several animated series and produced pilots for three as well as managing the post department on the TV series “Nora and the Magic Tree”, liaising with international partners in Malaysia and the UK. My primary duties also included the day-to-day running of the studio from general enquiries to HR and recruitment through to managing various projects and future series development. 


Since 2004 I have primarily produced corporate and training video production for a variety of clients including UWS (now WSU), DADHC (now ADHC), West Moreton Health Service, Komatsu, Sicame and various agricultural sectors including Seftons, GRDC, Australian Pork LTD and Meat and Livestock Australia. This work has taken me all across Australia and overseas including Indonesia, Vietnam and Bahrain.


In 2015 I began trading as Able Media Productions.
