He represents the future generations of Fabric, a highly practical and technically savvy Gen-Y guy who is able to embrace the technology of the age with ease.

Taryn has been a force in film production since 2002 as a PA at Dragonslayer and Aht in Sydney.

Her friendly and likable nature coupled with her amazing attention to detail quickly made her a very busy girl! Taryn, Krista and Charlie have worked together on a multitude of jobs in the last twelve years and so it was a natural progression to have Taryn step into the role of Charlie's producer. Taryn's enthusiasm for each and every job that comes along is unwavering and we love her being a part of the Fabric family!
