Educated at Camberwell School of Art, London. BA 3D Design. Worked in Community Art at the Great Georges Community Cultural Project in Liverpool for two years. I had my first experiences of using video there. Worked as an assistant to a sculptor, as a graphic designer at the fringes of the music industry, and as a contributor of photomontage to various magazines. Commissioned by Channel 4 TV to make video pilot in its early years.
Since 2002 have concentrated on the production of short digital films. Associated in the past with the artist’s film website Tank TV when Laure Prouvost was the editor, until it was discontinued . My work has been shown at various film festivals and art venues around the world.
