Last year during Covid lockdowns I worked on a show in a true bubble. It was a crazy experience that resulted in a lovely show. Today I'm proud to be nominated for an Australian Directors' Guild Award for my work in episode 9 on PM's Daughter. Many congratulations to the other nominees including my fellow director on the series, Julietta Boscolo!

Many years ago I had the pleasure of working with an emerging writer to direct his pilot (Timothy), we stayed mates and now I'm thrilled to be directing on Tristram Baumber's latest series for ABC / Fremantle Australia, PM's Daughter with some very exciting new talent.

First glimpses of Under The Vines and a little behind the scenes as we near the end of the shoot. What a gorgeous and fun ride the shoot has been. Got my mug on here too. 

December 9th, 2020

FINALLY able to announce a new series I created, co-wrote and will direct 3 episodes. Under The Vines is a 6 x 1 hour rom com for TVNZ and AcornTV... and truth be told, I couldn't be prouder to announce this crazy show. Was definitely a labour of love and funnily enough, it's about love and it's set in the world of something else I love... wine! #winning

Covid-19 hit us all pretty hard. Was delighted to be interviewed alongside some wonderful directors on the effects of lockdowns to the industry and production in general. Thought I might have been announcing a big new project about now, but instead ended up talking about the shut down of that big new project #SometimesShitHappens.

Nice write-up in IF Magazine about Aftermath, the show I've been squirrelling away on for nearly 2 years. FINALLY Michelle Hardy and I are getting somewhere with it.

Informed today that a clip I directed for Jungle Entertainment's second series of the very funny Squinters has reached over 2.5 million views. Super proud to be involved with this one. Shouts to creator Adam Zwar, writer Kodie Bedford, and of course Wayne Blair and Mandy McElhinney for their talent and faces. #ImportantStuff!

Just back from New Zealand doing a recce and writers' room for a new project I wrote. I can leak one tiny tidbit. There may or may not be mountains in it. Exciting news coming maybe one day.

12 films down, 13 films to go at SYDNEY FILM FESTIVAL. Not actually planning on writing any reviews, because that would be unnecessary work.

Finished up online edit on Jungle Entertainment's new Phil Lloyd project, Sando. Loved working on this crazy show, so many good people, especially those two lovely fellas, the Van Vuuren Bros. The show airs on ABC in March 2018 and I directed eps 4, 5 & 6.
