I'm a filmmaker, photographer & illustrator 

I have been making films and television programmes for more than 30 years, producing over 200 hours of broadcast television for the BBC, Channel 4, ITV and FIVE.

I have recently devised and produced distance filming for Arts Council funded projects during the COVID-19 pandemic. These include a Windrush documentary for Black History Month and a series of school workshops for children with special needs.

 

I directed and produced the 2020 Holmfirth Arts Festival LIVE online. The studio is set up for live-streaming events.

 

I've designed games for many TV shows including Gladiators, Jungle Run and The Really Wild Show. And I've written drama for the BBC and ITV. I've also directed dance films that have been shown in film festivals around the world.

 

I've made documentaries ranging from the plight of orphans in the civil war in Kosovo, to underprivileged children on the streets of East Leeds.

I've painted a poet laureate's daughter and illustrated books on massage, websites for yoga and, with an ostrich, gameplay for the All England Netball Association.
