I got into video in the mid-eighties, cutting my first short experimental edits at home on domestic VHS. It wasn't until I had the opportunity of working for a film production company in Wardour St. (Soho, London) that I got inside a "real" edit suite. I was hooked. Shortly afterwards I found myself joining a corporate communications agency as a producer on audio visuals and videos for conferences. This led on to me working in the conference sector with various agencies for fifteen years before making the break to go freelance as a producer/director and editor in 1999. Since then I have worked primarily for small production companies and agencies, and have had the chance to work with a huge variety of clients - some very big and some very small.
To see a variety of my work please take a look at my Vimeo gallery.
I get a real kick from teaching people and under the encyber: Digital Media banner I produced a successful series of Final Cut Pro 7 tutorials, which are available on YouTube and Vimeo. I've been told by some that they are the clearest and easiest tutorials to follow. I am flattered.
On a more personal level, I have had a passion for historic aviation for as long as I can remember, and I am a founding member of The People's Mosquito and served on the board as Director of Communications for some time. The aim of this charitable project is to restore a Second World War de Havilland DH.98 Mosquito to flight in the UK for heritage, conservation and educational purposes, and its motto is: 'to fly: to educate: to remember'. To find out more please visit the website at www.peoplesmosquito.org.uk. Or you can follow the Facebook page or supporters' group, or follow the project on Twitter.
