About

I am a Melbourne based filmmaker and human rights activist. I am currently producing documentaries and developing creative media projects for film and television.

My latest project is a feature documentary on child soldiers and the guerrilla war in Northern Uganda, told through a personal narrative. I have recently secured a US producer for the film, Alec Pedersen, who has been involved with a number of successful films, most notable to date being the 2009 Academy Award winning documentary ‘The Cove.

After my first trip to Africa in 2009, I came home to Australia and I wanted to find a way to help the people I met, who had touched me and who were all victims of a horrific civil war.  I had promised to send a few bicycles to help the difficult lives of the 6 former child soldiers I had spent a lot of time with.

Then in 2010, I founded Bikes 4 Life, a not-for-profit organization that provides bikes to marginalized people and those in need. Bikes 4 Life is currently collecting and restoring second hand bicycles to send to the most needy and war affected regions of Northern Uganda. We have our first container being shipped in the next couple of months! I am also hoping to set up a program on the ground that is directed at aiding rehabilitation efforts and economic development for former child soldiers and isolated communities directly affected by war.
