Hi there, I'm Jeff.
Filmmaker / Photographer / Coffee Lover
Then and now. Not much has changed, except these days I dress myself.
I love films, people and adventure. My job is my passion and I love telling stories through film. I'm driven by people doing good things in the world and want to inspire change and awareness through my work.
I've directed, filmed & edited numerous short documentaries and in 2016 directed my first feature length, The Coffee Man. The Coffee Man has screened in 350+ theatres in 50+ countries. The film won "Best Australian Documentary" at the Melbourne Documentary Film Festival 2016 and was nominated for an ATOM 2016 (Australian Teachers of Media) Award for "Best Documentary - Bio". and a James Beard Award in 2017 for "Best Documentary Film."
I've created documentaries independently and in collaboration with clients or other filmmakers.
I Love Drones!
Travelling to some of the most beautiful places and capturing images with my drones are turning slowly into an obsession. Here are 3 shorts clips I've filmed and edited.
Walk to Water
Sri Lanka Fundraising Campaign
In 2012 when I was a still at film school, I travelled to Sri Lanka with two others, for an independent film project. We raised over $8K, through crowd funding, to build a water tube well in the North-East where access to clean water is scarce.
We worked alongside a Non-Government Organisation to coordinate this project and it was was very rewarding to see a water tube well built for the people living in the village where we stayed.
This trip really opened my eyes to documentary film making and I'm keen to visit Sri Lanka again soon!
Campaigns and Social Media
I've produced, directed and edited numerous video content for social media, youtube, websites and marketing campaigns for multiple clients.
I always make sure I get the job done on time, no matter what it takes and I love working with clients to create new and engaging work which will promote their brands to speak directly to their target audiences.
Strategy is super important with digital marketing and I love seeing results, like this below!

Music has always been close to my heart. I spent many years in my 20s playing guitar and singing in bands; therefore it's only natural that I love working with musicians and creating music videos.
