westward films is a dynamic film and video production company based in melbourne


I founded Westward Films in 2012 on the absolute belief that only film can capture the true heart and soul of the people in front of the camera. The story telling is by far the most important part of videography and it is what I enjoy most about this job.

Running Westward Films is my full time occupation but I have many other passions. I hold a PhD in Biomedical Science and currently lead a research program at Monash University into the prevention of heart attack and stroke. If I’m not filming weddings or I’m not in the lab, I love to spend time with my 4 children, ride my motorbike or you find me piloting a plane over the Yarra Valley.

Westward Films brings an unrivalled level of technical knowledge to your project. But more importantly, my true passion is to detail and capture every key moment with the aim to tell your story, your way.
