I was born in Chertsey, Surrey in 1976 and have always had a passion for film and everything the process involves. Having taken Film Studies at Brooklands College in Weybridge I went on to my first job in the industry as a special effects runner for Animated Extras based at Shepperton Film Studios, working on the Sci-Fi film Event Horizon.
From there I changed role to Head Runner at the studios, giving me great access to the many film and commercial sets, soaking up as much knowledge as I could. Loving the experience and encountering many of Hollywood's stars in the process I became truly awestruck by the industry.
From there I was presented with the opportunity to move into TV drama as a camera assistant, and found my calling, never looking back. With over a 15 years' experience filming everything from drama to news I still hold a great passion for the work and enjoy the creative process enormously. Long may it continue!
