At the end of 2009 I completed a Bachelor of Film and Television at Bond University on the Gold Coast of Australia. During my studies at Bond I made several short films with my main expertise being in production design. Outside of university I persued my interest in documentary filmmaking where I have directed and produced three short documentaries and one travel piece. My film Ladies of Samoa was a short list finalist in the 2009 National Geographic/World Nomads documentary scholarship program. The same film won the Filmaka August round of the documentary competition.
