Originally from the north east, my background in art and design led me to working in the film industry in London where I soon realised that the director's chair was the place for me.
With over 16 years of experience creating work for advertising and corporate clients my passion for the job, the excitement and the challenges it brings remains absolute.
Whether it’s teasing comic performances from football managers or deployed with Royal Marines on a beach assault in Albania, my work combines stylish, high quality imagery with strong, compelling and entertaining narratives.
I've worked across the globe, from south east Asia to the USA, South America, most of Europe and the UK, hung out of helicopters, filmed on Royal Navy ships and submarines, chased motorbikes across France and won a few awards.
I'm often involved from the start of the creative process, generating ideas, writing treatments and delivering scripts, old enough to have shot on film and experienced with all major digital camera systems, formats and workflows.
