I am an independent cameraman, director of photography, and editor for documentary, news, interview and corporate assignments, with award-winning documentary work and experience in developing original TV / online content. My freelance assignments have included work for BBC World News, National Geographic Channel, Al Arabiya News, NRK Norwegian Television, The Motion Picture Association, FTV Future TeleVision, and AVH Live (a division of Ogilvy). “Adventure Under Sail”, a documentary profile of ocean adventurer Marc Cuthbert, won First Prize at the 2005 Beijing International Student Film Festival.
In addition, I have significant experience in post-production and editing. I am highly proficient in Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 and CS6, and all major applications, systems, codecs and protocols required in modern digital post-production workflows.
I am also an experienced web designer and developer with an extensive portfolio across all aspects of online and web-based media. Plus, I dabble in photography, and some of my experimental media art has been seen in a number of exhibitions, including the Microwave International Media Arts Festival. I hold an MFA in Media Design and Technology from the School of Creative Media, City University of Hong Kong.
