About me

Ok, so I'm a New Zealand born Japanese, having directed and filmed short films / fashion films / commercials, and now back to Japan hoping to get a little more involved in the film / commercial industry here. I am still very new to Tokyo~it's only been a month!

I have been working in Korea as a director and frequently DoPing for commercials, fashion films and short films, one of which went to the Berlin Fashion Film Festival earlier this year.

Please contact me if you've got a gig or any projects you'd like to share!
