Since I was a kid I’ve always been looking to do something creative. I used to put on ‘films’ in the living room using toys as props and pieces of paper with the credits written on them, and my Mum used to sit there and patiently watch every one of my ‘productions’. Alongside this, I’d create music out of nothing but a PlayStation and some sample CDs – I was nothing if not resourceful, and it’s no surprise I’m still doing this in my adult life.
First and foremost, I have an instinct for what hooks and moves people, and it’s this that hopefully translates into my work. I trained as an actor, and on top of this continued to develop storytelling skills that naturally translated into Video Production, and I used my love of music creation & production to expand the services I offer. Whatever the nature of the project, I concentrate on drawing the pieces together and bringing it to life, like a wannabe Quincy Jones or Walter Murch. In every project, there has to be some emotional kick for me, which in turn usually translates into better work! Whether it’s a personal video or a jingle for an ad campaign, ultimately the aim is the same – to connect in some way with the viewer or listener, and leave a lasting impression.
I reside in the UK and work on a freelance basis, which means I focus on each project individually, and I’m also able to work remotely and provide online viewings and listenings so that projects can be checked and have changes requested along the way. I also outsource according to necessity when it comes to creating aspects of the work I wouldn’t normally handle myself – such as complicated motion graphics or recording a fizzfunkin’ bass player. Recent video clients have included the BBC and Sadler’s Wells, and I also write and produce for various production music companies such as Music X Film – supplying music for TV, film, ads and more – and have had my music shortlisted for use by companies such as Netflix…check out some tunes on the Music Page!
