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 with a film production company in Soho (London) that I got inside a "real" edit suite, and I was hooked. That experience helped me in securing a position with a corporate communications agency as a producer on audio visual and video content 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.
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 the first five years of the project's life, building the public image and awareness of the charity and developing the brand. 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'.
