Director Statement

I couldn't believe my luck when I discovered there was a media company on my doorstep that combined my passion for film with making a social impact in the fallout from the war on drugs. When I first walked through the Bunkers blast door, I found everything I thought Wrexham was missing. And when I saw Marcus was working on cutting an interview with one of my heroes Professor David Nutt, I wished that I had arrived there sooner!

The Recovery Expedition is the latest production from Eternal Media that I have had the privilege and pleasure to be given the responsibility of directing. I am proud to be entrusted in promoting recovery and to call myself a friend of the recovery community.
