About Me and my C.V

I am a freelance director/cinematographer with my own cameras and equipment. I live in Sydney, Australia however relocating is not an issue for me.
Besides having a vivid imagination and being a very hard worker who goes where he needs to be in order to finish a project, I have plenty of resilience to offer and I am driven by my passion of filmmaking. I have studied film (Bachelor of Arts in Digital Filmmaking) but the important things that I have learned came from life itself and all its curiosities and its strangeness.
I work well independently but I like to think that where I really thrive is in a group environment and I give preference to brainstorming sessions alongside creative minded people. I like to push myself further with every project and I do whatever it takes to get the ‘money shot’.
With the use of my equipment, software and experience I believe I am an asset on any production and I know I can contribute a great deal to any project.
