I've been playing piano since I was 7 and guitar since I was 15. I sang in my school choir in Primary School and High School and was the youngest person to be accepted into my High School's jazz band in Year 7. I stuck with that group in all its various forms until Year 12.
Since finishing High School, I busked in the streets of Melbourne for over three years, building up a repertoire, I've also played in various friends bands and groups. In the last few years, I've been writing my own contemporary music to play at cafes and open-mics.
I've been composing music for my own films since I was 14, just writing keyboard parts and atmospheric tracks. I've also played live music for theatre, adaptations of existing songs or compositions of my own.
With La Trobe Student Theatre, I've directed and performed in a few Cabarets, throughout the years, organising the casts, directing the singers and band and orchestrating the backing vocal harmonies.

Film & Stage Crew

FILM:
I'm an amateur film-maker, having worked on my own small projects since I was in High School. Using local film festivals as motivation to make as much as I could, I went to La Trobe to study film, where I was also involved in some small projects there.
In 2016, I went to RMIT to do a Diploma in Screen and Media, in order to get a grasp, from the ground floor, on what sort of equipment was being used in professional film shoots. Through some luck, I've been able to volunteer on a few short film sets.
Apart from those, the only experience I have is from what I've made myself. I'm interested in cinematography and I'd eventually like to become an editor. But the more time I spend on film sets, the happier I am.

I'm happy to play any role in a crew, from Production Assistant to Camera and Lighting Assistant or anything else.

THEATRE:

I've had a lot of experience directing and writing amateur film, from pre-production through lighting set ups and the season as well. My biggest experience is in being Musical Director on various plays and Cabarets, directing and casting the singers and actors and organising them into a final show.
