Welcome to my website
Was in a punk band that rehearsed in a garden shed and gigged at ‘Skunx’, the long-gone punk club in London’s City Road. Left home, followed bands, traveled and did dead end jobs. Then one day, in Cambridge city centre, I saw some film students shooting a low-budget drama. I thought “I wanna do that” so found out where they were from. A year later was at ‘The London College of Printing’ doing the ‘Film and TV Studies’ degree.
One of our LCP modules was taught by Jack Sargeant (author of ‘Death Tripping’, ‘The Cinema of Transgression’, ‘The Naked Lens’, etc). Inspired by Jack’s lectures I decided my second year placement would be at Richard Desmond’s ‘Northern and Shell Media Group’ where I assisted various magazine editors. After graduating in 2001, I carried on at Northern and Shell for five more years in a paid position on the cable TV channels.
Wanting to make things myself I bought a camera and started to make my own short, low-budget documentaries which have typically explored art, engineering and heritage themes. I eventually left ‘Northern and Shell’ in 2006 to freelance as a production assistant/AD and also picked up work as a film extra/walk-on (‘Children of Men’, ‘The IT Crowd’, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’, ads, etc)
My last project was a short documentary about a pair of statues that were stolen from a memorial garden in Yorkshire. Contact me via email@example.com or by using the icon on this site. In my spare time I blog, teach IT, restore cars and do voluntary work in North London. I’m a member of ‘BECTU’ and ‘The Writer’s Guild’.
