I was born in Australia in 1983 and then grew up in Lausanne, Switzerland. As the son of an actor and stage director, I evolved in the creative industries from an early age.
I have worked on more than 20 short films and plays, 7 feature films and attended workshops with Sławomir Idziak and Ali Cherkaoui (amongst others). In 2015, I did an attachment with Denis Villeneuve on the feature film Arrival in Montreal, Canada.
I have written and will direct SHADOWS as the final project of my Masters of Screen Arts at the Australian Film Television and Radio School (AFTRS).
Along with the producers, Melano Sokhadze and Anton Rivette, we want to ensure the fair pay for all those involved in the creation of SHADOWS. We have been inspired by the current campaign by the National Association for the Visual Arts (NAVA), who are calling for the fair pay of all artists in the visual arts industry (https://visualarts.net.au/advocacy/campaigns/artists-fees/). We feel that something similar needs to happen at the emerging level of the Australian film industry, and we hope that this campaign will help bring attention to this issue.
