MY BACKGROUND

 

 

Filming and storytelling is something which is in my blood. Having grown up in a film production family, it is no wonder that he would also follow the same career path. With more than 18 years of experience in directing, filming and editing for Endemol, Warner, Simpel Media and Shine, I’m well versed in every aspect of studio and location production. My projects have scanned the globe, from North to South and East to West taking with me a sense of privilege as I’m capturing real-life situations turning them into compelling stories. My modus operandi is to tell real and engaging stories so that the audience is ‘immersed in the moment.
