Tim Noonan is the host of Travel Channel's reality series "Boy to Man."

Filmmaker Tim Noonan goes where few other reporters can go. He is his own producer, reporter and cameraman — a gritty and talented one-man-band.

Seven's Sunday Night created a special role for Noonan after seeing what he could do with a small camera and a wide-ranging brief. With very little backup and heaps of dedication, Noonan has compiled a unique record of threatened people, places and animals from the far corners of the planet before they disappear forever.  

Former Director of News and Public Affairs, Peter Meakin, describes him as "one of the best and bravest newsmen I have ever known."

On his own and in environments where anything can go wrong at almost any time, Noonan strives to capture the true essence of what his subjects are all about.

From a stone-age tribe in the Amazon to mountain gorillas in Congo, to lion warriors in Kenya, Noonan has established a reputation in Australia as a fearless video journalist who can get to otherwise inaccessible people and places.

He has followed murderers, drug lords, gangs, people smugglers and rebels into potentially life-threatening situations.

In November 2009, Noonan won a prestigious Walkley Award as the Best News and Current Affairs Cameraman in Australia. Two days later, he hosted his first one-hour prime-time special "Today Tonight: Unseen." He produced, hosted and filmed the program entirely on his own. The show not only won the ratings, but made that week's Top Ten.

Despite his youth, Noonan's career is studded with achievements. In 2012 he was again nominated for another Walkley award, has been nominated for two Logies, worked as a senior producer on "The Force" and "Border Security" and been a video-journalist for "Today Tonight." But Noonan has also had a successful career in film.

In 2003, he won two Warner Bros. New Filmmaker Awards before going on to win the Courier Mail Shortcut Film Festival for his film, "Pens at Ten Paces." Two of his movies made the finals in the 2003 New York International Student Film Festival, "Pens at Ten Paces" and "Rendezvous." "Rendezvous," which he shot, won the award for Best Animation.

His most recent film, "Operating Instructions," starred Gary Sweet. The film made the official selection for the St. Kilda Film Festival, Brisbane International Film Festival, Australian International Film Festival and was nominated for ten awards at the Queensland Short Film Festival.

Noonan won Best Director and Best Open Film for "Operating Instructions" at the 2006 Warner Bros. New Filmmaker Awards.
