Speaker | MC | Q&A | Panel Moderator

Being a versatile screen and media professional with a broad background means I have a cache of real world anecdotes from behind the velvet ropes of fame and infamy; getting a backstage pass to the front line of the Middle East war with optional audio-visual content that can add colour and value to your event.


I’ve interviewed 500+ people ranging from Oscar winners – Morgan Freeman and Tarantino to CEOs, scientists, ordinary people doing extraordinary things, mercenaries, pirates in prison, politicians, assorted eccentrics and even the odd criminal.  I continue to write scripts, books and make documentary content while lecturing in production and film analysis.

Speciality topics

I can research a specific material for your event or deliver one of my specialty topics:


Transition Management – dealing with the challenge of change.


Going Back To School – the rewards of concurrent and continued education in the workplace.


Ticketyboo – a personal story of dealing with dementia.
This is also the research focus of my Master of Creative Arts at UTS – crafting a poetic documentary and immersive experience of dementia that I will donate to relevant organizations as philanthropic activism.
