Take your content in a bold new direction

With expertise in all aspects of content creation I offer a wide range of creative services, but specialise in creative video campaigns for higher education and research. 

From strategy and planning, to concept development and writing; producing and creating; and editing and motion graphics. I also work with the best in the industry to deliver world class animation and visual effects.

Always undertaking intensive research I bring a new perspective, and at the heart of everything I do is the fine art of storytelling.        


This is my creative process

What defines the work that I do? My creative process, employed for engagement strategies, conceptual pitches, narrative development, interviews, and the development of e-learning materials. 

It is my job to transform the work that you do into a dynamic content experience.

And how about the work?

This isn’t superficial marketing. Driven by curiosity and discovery, my aim is to take audiences on a cinematic voyage and create deep content.

Creating high octane audio-visual experiences for education and research.

Developing your creative direction, I support institutions and organisations with their in-house productions to meet the expectations of contemporary audiences.

Creative translation of research to engage and inspire, and to connect with high value audiences including industry and government.

Impactful and accountable social media content. Working with researchers and experts to share their insights and ideas and foster valuable relationships.

Express your vision of the future with brand campaigns that get beneath the surface and bring purpose to life.

Even when not working, I’m committed to the art and craft of storytelling.

Research & teaching

Alongside my creative practice I am a digital media researcher, I work with clients to design and deliver bespoke professional development training, and I teach industry engagement and provide academic supervision for student projects.

Working with audiences as diverse as AI researchers on YouTube; neuroscientists on TikTok; business scholars’ raising their industry profiles; and entrepreneurs perfecting their pitch, I run professional development and community of practice workshops. Areas of expertise include audience engagement, creative translation of research, and digital storytelling.

Clients have included The ARC Centre of Excellence for Automated Decision-Making and Society (ADM+S) and the Digital Media Research Centre; Swinburne Innovation Studio; UTS Graduate Research School; and Griffith Business School.
