People fascinate me, the natural world, fascinates me. The depth, vibrant colours and diversity of cultures engages me to a core.
I have had some fantastic mentors and opportunities and worked with some incredibly talented people, this has given me a wide range of skills that when bought together, it all makes sense! Mark Tildesley mentored me for Art Department and is a well respected production designer. Pamela Kraft, who just won ‘Spirit of the UN Award’ and founder of Tribal Link, always takes time to meet and teach. Dr Austin Bowden-Kerby, still today teaches me the stories of the ocean and coral reefs but also the relationship local people have with natural world, which is wonderful.
Trained in Theatre, worked my way from art department runner to art director, ran logistics on the big Hollywood blockbusters and then went to film! I have spent the last 8 years in the South Pacific filming and working with the people of the Fiji Islands.
I make films, fix for International film companies, manage, market and brand projects and foundered S.E.L.F – Sustainable Environmental Living for the Future / www.self.uk.com.
I am a qualified Dive master and filmed underwater for the PANDA award winning film - The Coral Gardener.
