All work and no play makes Jack and dull boy.


Born and bred in Yorkshire, I have spent most of my life here, with a four year stint at Keele University in Staffordshire and several months working in the United States. I currently live with my wife and two children.
After teaching for a number of years, I ran a number of businesses that offered educational media consultancy, workshops and training to teachers and other education professionals through Creative Partnerships UK; as well as producing short corporate and promotional videos for charities, arts and community groups and businesses. I have worked with a diverse range of local, national and international producers, directors and TV and media stars, including Kelly Harrison, Barbara Marten, Ricky Gervais and Paul Daniels.
In 2006, as part of an education project, I coordinated a feature film called “Waterfall”. My short film “Celebrate!” was a regional finalist in the BAFTA Sixty Seconds of Fame competition in 2007 and in 2008 I wrote and directed a short film called “The Secret”, which won the 4 Star Premiere Award at the BIAF Festival last year.
After 2008 I continued to write and direct several short films and documentary projects, including the feature film “Five Pillars”, currently available on Amazon.
A member of the Labour Party since I was 15, I was elected a councillor in Rotherham in 2015 but stood down in 2016 and have since left Labour after 27 years. My creative focus has also shifted, from being behind the camera to being in front of Final Draft and Scrivener where I now concentrate on my writing. I’ve a keen interest in history, particularly art and architectural history in England, and this is a large focus of this blog.
I have been a practising Buddhist since 2000.

    One of my roles at Thomas Rotherham College is to help develop our theme weeks and in particular Culture Diversity Week. In support of the Media department I wonder if you would be able to put on a showing of one of your short films, maybe ‘The Secret’ and run a workshop for students who are interested in film and may want to pursue this as a career.

      Thanks for your comment Matt. I emailed you last week and I believe you called me but I was out on a shoot. If you’d like to give me a call one evening this week I’d love to come and have a chat about how we can make this work.
