I started as a runner on the American TV show Xena: Warrior Princess, which was being filmed in New Zealand in the mid 1990s, so I have worked my way up the ladder from the bottom. I have worked as a 1st or 2nd AD on over 25 dramas such as The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Yogi Bear, The Shannara Chronicles and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny.

I have always loved to see films at the cinema but I obviously had no idea in 1977 what my future had in store for me. I just knew that I wanted a job that I loved and wanted to be somewhere where they made these kinds of films.
