I am filmmaker and educator with a strong interest in highly authentic short-form works that challenge, inspire and motivate people. I have over 20 years experience in media production, and have written and produced content for private, government and not-for-profit sectors.
I am equally experienced as an educator—ranging from kindergarten children right up to university students. I developed the corporate media program for Curtin University, where I also held a leadership role as Director of Learning & Teaching for the School of Media, Culture and the Creative Arts.
Front Porch Films evolved partly from my filmmaking and teaching experience but, and perhaps more importantly, my 50+ years ‘life’ experience of forming positive and rewarding connections with people from (quite literally) all walks of life.
People tell me I have a knack for engaging a stranger in conversation and making them feel comfortable. This is something I learned from my father. He called it the ‘art of conversation’ and it comes very naturally to me indeed.
