Jamie is a uniquely talented and award-winning performance director. From comedy to drama, Jamie’s uncommon empathy translates to his work and resonates deeply with audiences.

Kiwi born and bred, Jamie made his directorial debut age 6 with a polar-fleece puppet lip-syncing to Enya. Since then, his films have gone on to win notable awards at NZIFF, Show Me Shorts, France's Festival des Antipodes, and the Oscar-qualifying Nashville Film Festival.

Jamie has been nominated for the SPADA New Filmmaker Award, received a New York Film Academy Scholarship, a Directors’ Guild Internship, and a Script to Screen FilmUp Mentorship.

He has received nominations for the Emerging Talent Award and multiple Best Direction Awards at CAANZ Axis. Jamie has also received both development funding and proof of concept funding for his feature film “Skin”.

From actors to creatives to crew and clients, our Jamie is collaborative, inclusive and kind and we are proud to see his star so deservedly rise and rise.
