Movie director of 1990s fare like Adolescent Weapons II and second device director for the initial three Lord from the Bands films. He worked well like a schoolteacher before embracing film. He was a founding person in the popular musical and theatrical co-operative Blerta, frequently regarded as a hippy collective. He was wedded to filmmaker Merata Mita until her loss of life in-may 2010. He worked well carefully with Peter Jackson through the creation of the original Lord from the Bands trilogy.
