I grew up on the banks of Kings Billabong Wildlife Reserve, Victoria, Australia, and it was these remarkable wetlands that filled me with awe and inspiration.
Being creative and a hopeless romantic, I began taking pictures and this transformed how I saw the landscape around me. Through my final years of secondary school my Pentax K1000 camera went everywhere with me and together we created my portfolio for Year 12.
Sadly, I did not get into the photography course of my choice. But, with every life journey, this disappointment opened up a new door for me. I was offered a place to study Media at La Trobe University, Melbourne. It was here that my love affair with video and post-production began.
My Dad was a vascular surgeon and his life as a surgeon became one of my main subjects. This included many hours filming him operating and treating patients. I never desired to be a doctor but you could say that production and medicine have always walked a parallel path for me.
After completing my BA I found my dream job at Channel 9 (Melbourne). This part of my career was thrilling and cemented my love of creating something beautiful from the imagination and bringing it to life on the screen.
When I moved to London, I freelanced as an editor for Sky News and worked there for ten years. During this time, I met and married my husband, also a surgeon, and this is how I met Susan Alexander.
Susan and my husband were both taught by Vishy Mahadevan. Susan wanted to capture his unique style of teaching on video and this is when she approached me. With her passionate vision for changing the way we learn anatomy and my creative background in production, we came together and The Funky Professor was not only born but has evolved into what it is today.
