About Us

We help businesses create engaging video content through short tailored workshops.


I started Video Skills as I saw a skills gap in marketing and communication teams. Many teams and businesses have great stories to tell about themselves and for clients but don’t have the video production skills to turn them into video content.

For years I worked for many leading brands and NGOs including the BBC, Fairfax Media, Bloomberg, Canon, AMP, Amnesty International and Australian Red Cross.

I have distilled this knowledge into short one and two-day courses to get you ready and confident to produce your own footage in hours not months. This will save you time and money.

On my days off, I love free-diving, surfing and ocean swimming on Sydney’s northern beaches.
