I was always fascinated with my dad’s Super8 and still cameras as a child, quietly commandeering them to experiment on my own.

As a teen I moved on to race BMX and Mountain Bikes, so I naturally brought dad’s video camera along to document my thrills and spills – which I then edited at home using two VCRs. I actually went on to shoot, edit and produce an All-Canadian BMX Bike video that was sold nationally through local bike shops and Walmart Canada.

Eventually I enrolled in Humber’s Post Graduate diploma in Film and TV Post-Production, while on the side operating a little production shop with video companies as clients. (Also had a nice stint as a Broadcast Assistant aboard a cruise ship!)

After editing for a new video-travel website, I began producing training and promotional videos for the Peel District school board, then in 2010 I became fully independent and have not looked back (nor had time to!)
