I am an active and enthusiastic person who is passionate about television and the
outdoors. I was born and bred in Lincoln, near Christchurch, and brought up on a 5-
acre hobby farm. I attended Lincoln High School, and was heavily involved in
performing arts and in the later years through my outdoor knowledge became
involved in outdoor education. I have also completed a course on theatre lighting. I
have spent the last 2 years at New Zealand Broadcasting School studying for a
Bachelor of Broadcasting Communications majoring in Television Production. I
have learnt the basics in many facets of the industry but have focused on editing,
sound, camera and technical manager (TD).

Career Objectives
My main interests in the television industry are Camera and Technical Manager (TD).

I have enjoyed my time at Broadcasting School and wish to further my career in the
Television industry. I am most interested in becoming involved in Current Affairs
Television or Adventure Television. I prefer to be involved with camera work but also
am interested in the technical side, such as Technical Manager (TD) and Live Outside
Broadcasts. I am willing to travel. I want to work in an industry where there are always
new challenges, where I can meet new people and work constructively even when
sometimes under pressure.

Chinese - in Mandarin could “take part in general conversation with native speakers,
understanding most of what is said and contributing relevant comments”

Since before High School I have been tramping in the outdoors with the Peninsula
Tramping Club. Through this experience I have gained mountain skills and now own a
lot of gear (ice axe, crampons, packs, winter clothing and skis). In the past 4 years I
have also become a keen skier and have spent a lot of time involved in that industry. In
my spare time when not in the mountains, I enjoy being out on the water, water skiing.
I am a passionate outdoor person.
