My TV work started at Westward television in 1977 as a trainee in production then moved to LWT as a studio cameraman,
then moved back to Television South West to pilot a magazine show for teenagers called Sounding Bored, this was followed by a documentary called Exile about Tibetans living in India, shot on 16mm then back to UK to produced a short feature called Beautiful Thing for director/writer Erik Knudsen,
 Television on air production, working for Sky One, and TV3 as a promo producer for Sweden, Denmark and Norway,
continuing as a promo producer at the Discovery channel then joined the launch team for UK Gold with a company called Caplan & Wilkie. After the launch I was asked to join the staff at UK Gold continuing to make promos until moving to Living TV and then onto Flextech working on many of their channels.
During this time I wrote, shot, cast, directed and produced all my own on air material.
 
I started freelancing in 2000 and worked for Movie channels and directed the Architectural Awards documentary for Sky.
I made the re launch promos for Granada TV as they resurrected Crossroads!
also prepared and produced ITN’s pitch for the mega screens at most major UK train stations,
which we won!
The Media trust approached me with a project for the Inside Out Trust, which we shot over a year in and out of prisons looking at the training available for inmates within the prison system.
 Since then I have produced the odd short film, one of which called
 The Right Hand Man went on to win awards in a short film festival and was shown at Cannes 2006.
