Director, Producer, Camera

The career of director/producer Dean Cornish has taken him across both the globe and small-town New Zealand, from elderly Japanese cheerleaders to homeless people in Los Angeles. Trained at Christchurch's NZ Broadcasting School, Cornish has worked in more than 80 countries and crafted a reputation as a go-to guy for travel stories. En route he has won awards for music show Making Tracks and Intrepid Journeys.

I don't think of things that way. Dean Cornish, when asked about his worst travel experience, The Sunday Star-Times, 13 May 2007
