About Me

After starting out in HTV workshop back in the early 90’s, I went onto train and work as an actor and have appeared on TV and in numerous short films and theatre productions, before moving behind the camera.

In my early career, while still acting, I worked for a number of years as a workshop / film actor at the NFTS. At this time I also taught acting to younger years and directed a couple of small productions at the Tabernacle and Bridewell Theatre’s. I was picked up by the diary service Callbox and worked as a in-house / shoot runner and second AD on commercials and music videos. I picked up the production bug and took this excellent grounding to Bristol to work with Real Voice Media on a couple of small productions, later becoming co-director for the development and launch of Photosymbols, which has grown into the leading easy read communication tool.

In 2005 I landed Yahoo Fluid lives, producing and directing as a co-production, later forming 1LOVE®MEDIA and making work for MYLA, Value Retail, Cow&Gate, among others. I was asked to train both actors and technical students for the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School on a number of projects and modules, culminating in the short film GAG. I have taught performance and film-making in various settings and have also provided training in a corporate setting.

Alongside my media work I have a real passion for art and have curated art shows and promoted various street artists, having run 1LOVE®ART in Bristol between 2008 and 2016, an online blog / shop and pop up gallery, with my now x-partner. The Special’s Horace Panter, Goldie and Inkie are examples of work sold worldwide, alongside supporting up and coming artists such as DOTCOM, COPYRIGHT, KGUY and Stinkfish. I commissioned the now iconic STINKFISH piece in Bristols cultural quarter, Stokes Croft for a 1LOVEART show REBEL SOUL at the Canteen, Bristol and was often asked to comment on local artworks!

Over a number of years I was fortunate enough to work with BDH on a number of projects; an incredible opportunity for me to hone my skills and learn from some of the best in the business. Lisecki plays Chopin, Total Permission and That Petrol Emotion were a particular highlight.

I am a self shooting camera director and editor, particularly proficient in the 30, 60 and 90 sec format, for example; Bath Spa University. The MYLA’Sphere’commercial, Smerins Anti Social Club and The Flies are good examples of my work as a creative producer / director.

I bring a wealth of experience to each project. Freelance or production & studio services available.
