Curriculum Vitae

The ‘This working stuff is really cool’ points of my career


I have been very fortunate to have some really fantastic experiences throughout my career some memorable moments would have to include:
A helicopter shoot at 250 ft above ‘Tower Bridge’ with the sun flaring over the spires of London’s skyline;
Having the corporate marketing tech team (London) at BT stood around my work and ask “How did you do that?”;
Winning a BAFTA for ‘best new media’, when I had no idea I was even entered;
Being involved with the excitement and passion of students researching and developing creative and inspirational work;
Onstage at Hackney Marshes with Musicians: Ice-T, Mark-B & Blade, Biz Markie and Rodney-P;
Watching a young child who had been expelled from school and excluded for the best part of his formative years, get his first qualification without realising..
