My love of film all began when I was a young child and I visited the set of Kenneth Brannagh's 'King Henry V'. I was inspired by the whole experience; the towering 'polystyrene' walls of Agincourt, the elaborate costumes and the multitude of characters. Since then, I have worked as an assistant director, assistant camera operator, editor, camera operator, writer, actor, director and producer.
For more than four years I was head lighting cameraman at Take Five Casting Studios in London, castings all kinds of productions from mass commercials to high profile dramas including Shakur Kippur's 'Four Feathers.'
During my time at Take 5 I built a reputation for filming audition pieces for Hollywood, working one to one with various actors including Ioan Gryffud, Jason Isaac and the wonderful Hugh Laurie. Yes I filmed his first screen test for 'House'!
I have written and directed several documentary features, stage plays and short films including a black comedy short starring Johnny Vegas.
I have over 4 years experience as a film and acting tutor having run a film and tv production course at PQA Stroud where we won 3 national awards.
I am a qualified 360 feedback facilitator having lead emotional intelligence and communication skills workshops worldwide for companies including MTV, Save the Children, Time Inc and the Law Society.
I am passionate about enabling young people to explore their innate natural talents and to support them to develop both the technical skills and self-confidence needed to pursue a career in the performing arts.
