Who am I? It’s a question that has puzzled humanity since the dawn of time. Am I a cosmic energy floating in space? Am I defined by my hobbies, family, or the world I’ve created around me? Or perhaps I’m just a metaphorical parasite, consuming everything in my path? In truth, there’s a bit of reality in each of these perspectives. But let’s keep it simple. I am a husband, father, Creative Producer, Shooter Director, Video Editor, and yes, I’m a passionate canaries fan. But how did it all begin? Let me give you a glimpse.
Back in the mid-90s, I dipped my toes into the world of video by purchasing a high 8 camera. With friends, I crafted no-budget horror videos, much to my mom’s dismay as ketchup would vanish from our kitchen. The camera became my lens to observe the world, providing a creative outlet during my rather difficult teenage years. It felt like discovering a treasure, especially in a quiet seaside town with little excitement. I can’t quite explain what drew me to it, but I was captivated. From that moment, I dedicated my life to gaining knowledge in the industry, striving to improve, grow, and seize any opportunity that brought me closer to my dream of becoming a filmmaker (including working as a runner on ITV’s ‘The Trisha Show’). In 2005, I graduated from Teesside University with a first-class honours degree in Television Production and Professional Practice, receiving recognition as the Best Producer Director in a class of approximately 100 students. My work was gaining attention. Ego power-up.
Now, fast forward 20 years, and I’ve had the privilege of collaborating with renowned brands and agencies across the globe. As an award-winning, multi-skilled filmmaker, I offer my expertise as a Creative Producer, Shooter Director, and Video Editor. My comprehensive understanding of every aspect of the filmmaking process enables effective planning and early detection of production issues, resulting in resource and cost savings for clients. Moreover, it allows more time for idea generation, leading to outstanding content that stands out and satisfies clients.
My true passion lies in helping audiences grow and evolve. I aim to provoke shifts in thinking and awaken minds. Every business and product holds a unique story, and it’s my purpose to capture and present it for the world to see. I am driven, curious, ambitious, and a natural leader. I constantly challenge myself and the teams I work with, always seeking improvement.
This is who I am. Let’s Collaborate.
