Previous Life

My professional life has spanned a wide career incorporating art exhibitor, film curator, film archivist and filmmaker (fiction, factual, experimental and music videos). I have worked extensively as a funded filmmaker in a wide range of arts and community settings with an equally wide range of participants including children, young people and adults from all walks of life. Screenings of my work have taken place in London, Edinburgh, Cambridge, Bristol, New York, St Petersburg, Boston (USA).
