Until I discovered my K1000 SLR camera at age 17, I felt a distance from the world around me.
Photography gave me a new perspective, and to me it quickly became a language which connected people, places, memories and stories all over the world.
I’ve spent twenty years producing and directing documentaries and advertising campaigns, my camera always by my side. I believe that a sense of belonging is fundamental to life on this planet and I seek to capture that on film. My work is characterised by nostalgia, compassion and beauty, which creates highly credible imagery.
Being half Italian and raised in Auckland has instilled in me a great faith in humanity. I love the spontaneity of the diverse world we live in, where belonging is everywhere. In everything I produce there is a positive outlook with emotion driven purpose. I have a strong belief that story is in everything. Story with direction and purpose is the doorway to optimism.
No matter how the channels change, emotive storytelling will always be at the core of my purpose.
