Welcome to my website
A little about me…….
Once I was in a punk band. We rehearsed in a garden shed and gigged weekly at a long-lost, rather scary punk club in London’s City Road.
At 16 I left home; travelled, followed bands and worked various dead end jobs. Whilst out and about one day I saw some film students shooting a low-budget drama in Cambridge city centre. I found out where they were from and a year or so later I was at ‘The London College of Printing’ doing the ‘Film and Television Studies’ degree.
One of our modules at LCP was taught by Jack Sargeant (author of Death Tripping, The Cinema of Transgression, The Naked Lens, etc). Inspired by Jack’s lectures I decided that my second year placement would be at Richard Desmond’s ‘Northern and Shell Media Group’. Here I assisted various magazine editors. Finally graduating in 2001, I carried on for a further five years at Northern and Shell, now in a paid position at the cable TV channels.
Wanting to now make things myself I bought a camera and started to produce 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 a film extra ( was in ‘Children of Men’, ‘The IT Crowd’, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ & several TV ads)
My latest project is a short documentary about a pair of statues that were stolen from a memorial garden in Yorkshire. I can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org or by using the contact icon on this site. In my spare time I write an occasional blog, teach IT, restore cars and do voluntary work. I’m a member of ‘BECTU’ and ‘The Writer’s Guild’.
