Director Biography

I gravitated to the arts at an early stage. In secondary school, I studied photography and filmmaking and began to admirest in the world of film. I also shot short videos and painted murals with collaborators around Adelaide.

After finishing year 12, I spent time in Sri Lanka where I lived in a small fishing and surfing village and mixed mainly with local people. While living in Sri Lanka, I first conceptualised a script on which I am currently working.

After travelling for most of 2015, I started a degree course in filmmaking at SAE Byron Bay.

I returned to Adelaide in 2017, where I worked on the wine vintage to raise funds to make a short film, called Radicalised, which I shot, directed and edited myself. Now based in Melbourne, I recently finished my degree in filmmaking and have made a couple of my own short films and freelanced in the industry.

I began writing Boiling Frogs in 2018 and spent much of that year working on the screenplay. Nine months ago I started building the giant human disco ball pictured in the film. Since then, when not working in kitchens as a cook, I have spent the majority of my time in pre-production to make this thoroughly considered think-piece.
