I started out as an assistant colourist on Lord of the Rings here in Wellington. Finishing film school and straight into working on the biggest films on the planet was an experience I will never forget. I then moved into editoral for local and international productions for the next 4 years.
In 2008 I was approached about moving to Los Angeles to work at Laser Pacific in their features department. Six great years in Los Angeles I had the privilege of working with some of the worlds top cinematographers as well as learning and working with the best colourists there are.
Eventually it was time to move home to New Zealand to work on the last of the Hobbit films back where I had begun my career, in Middle Earth. Eight years at Park Road Post was another amazing experience but now I am on to my next chapter.
I have my own grading suite here in Wellington. I work remotely and am available for travel for both local and international work.
I have experience as a supervising colourist, finishing colourist, onset and dailies. Working on every size and complexity of film you can think of.
I do love the job, I enjoy working collaboratively with clients and helping get their vision onto the screen.
I want to put out work that my clients and I are proud of while making sure it's an enjoyable experience for everyone involved.
 Feel free to contact me even if its just for a chat. Its always nice to talk shop.
