About me

I have been in the industry now for 27 years, initially training in TV news and sport, moving into light entertainment, motor racing and music. After working in light entertainment and music for several years, I found myself working more on commercials, branded content and corporate films, which I have stayed working in until today. 

I learned very quickly that it is the people who can solve problems and create the best solution in-the-moment that survive.  Naturally, the industry has changed on a colossal level in all those years, culturally, technologically and financially, and I have always been able to adapt to the constant change.

Having the ever-lasting love for the job, I find it easy and very important to care deeply about whatever is in front of the lens and make sure that the shoot is productive and very importantly, fun and enjoyable. There are some unbelievably talented people and wonderful personalities in this business and it is the people that I love working with, that help make the best end product.
