I am an independent film maker based in Wellington, New Zealand. My production company is called Lone Pine. For the last decade I’ve been pursuing a DIY approach, using digital tools to craft long-form documentaries. My work features creative, passionate characters who pursue their goals against all odds. You can find out about past, present, and future projects here.

My work is also available for sale on this site. Click on the “How To Purchase” link. At the moment I can only supply hard copies on DVD, but in the near future I hope to be able to offer streaming and download options.
