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.

After completing a History and Philosophy degree at Keele University, I taught for a number of years and then ran a number of businesses across the creative industries. Lately I’ve been MD of a steel building construction company, which is completely leftfield of anything I’ve done before now!

My creative work includes several novels published under a pseudonym and, as myself, the award winning short films “The Secret”, “Georgia’s Angel” and “Land of Dreams”; and the feature length film “Five Pillars”.

My first book, “The Sleep of Reason“, considers how the Holocaust emerged out of social and historical trends in Europe.

Currently I’m working on two history related projects – a biography of Thomas Rotherham, Archbishop of York during the Wars of the Roses; and a history of the Minster of All Saints in Rotherham.

I have been a practising Buddhist since 2000 and live in Yorkshire with my wife and two children.

    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.
