Have you ever wanted to visit Australia?

Everyone is fascinated by the Sunburnt Country. It is one of the most rugged, awe-inspiring, and jaw-droppingly beautiful countries in the world. With thousands of plants and animals you can't find anywhere else, you'd think you were in a different world!

Next week, I will be in Melbourne Australia to film a travel documentary. This documentary will be made available on for anyone and everyone to watch as they please.


LOVE Australia and want to share my love for it with everyone.

Why Melbourne?

Somewhere around 80% of the U.S. population is only familiar with Sydney.  Yet every year, hundreds of thousands of people from all over the globe make a pilgrimage a destination in Australia other than Sydney.  Melbourne is Australia's second-largest city, and has a wealth of amazing and unique history that hardly anyone this side of the Pacific knows about.  St. Kilda, Federation Square, The Great Ocean Road, Twelve Apostles, Phillip Island Penguin Parade, the gold mining town of Walhalla... I plan on covering all of those destinations in the film, and more if possible.

What do I need?

I already have all of the filming equipment, airfare, and a campervan (motorhome). But I REALLY need your help with some expenses while I am there so I can make this the best documentary I possibly can. Food, petrol (gasoline!), and coffee add up QUICK. I want to capture as much as possible without going broke.

What's the big deal?

I only have 6 days in Melbourne to do this to make it AWESOME. I can only afford one week off from work to do this, and it means the world to me. I don't want to come home a failure. I want to make an awesome film and share my amazing experiences with you and the world!

Why Australia?

I'm an Australian-American born and raised in the US.  My father and his family migrated from Perth, Western Australia in 1969.  Sadly, I never met him, and never will.  He passed away 14 years ago, and since young love did not work in his favor, I grew up without him.  He means so much to me from what I know of him, and this missing piece of my life is what drives my passion and love for Australia and everything in it.

Am I any good?

I am not a professional film maker.  I am a hobbyist videographer with a large collection of good tools (camera, lenses, audio equipment, steadicam, miscellaneous rigs...).  I have been a photographer for over 10 years, and I have 12+ years work history in digital media, so I promise that I know how to make something that does NOT suck.

Everyone tells me I have a voice for the radio.

It's true.  Ever since I could shave I have been told that my voice is deep, strong, and pleasant to listen to.  This is not my opinion, but the words of many colleagues, friends, and family.  I also feel that I can write reasonably well.  I will work hard to make the dialog for the documentary useful, entertaining, and easy on the ears.

Please check out my blog and my Facebook page.

"But it's so young. You have hardly done anything!"

All of the planning for this crazy adventure I'm going on is what has been keeping me from writing more and publishing more content on my blog and Facebook page.  I have already made such a massive financial commitment to this project, I will not back down or let it die without one hell of a fight.

This is going to be awesome!

I promise you will not regret it.  Please donate to my cause and help me breath life into this dream.  Help me make it real.
