About Me:
I'm an independent film-maker, whose Graduate film 'Paint' was nominated for a BBC Award at the 17th Birmingham International Film and Television Festival. I have filmed everything from a Golden Lady returning to roost on a town hall spire, to an eccentrics funeral in order to raise money for children's hospitals, and everything in-between. I'm currently a publicity co-ordinator for The British Fantasy Society and its annual convention 'FantasyCon' where I run a short film showcase.
