I studied at Westminster University and have made films during and since. 

I've produced (written and directed) short films that have screened at the London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival several times, as well as New York, Hong Kong, Italy, Spain, Switzerland. Sweat was shortlisted for the Iris prize in 2008 and broadcast on !Here! TV and the New York based Logo channel. Another of my shorts, The Donor screened at Cannes and was selected from the Marche Du Film to screen in the prestigious Short iIlm Corner.

As well as teaching film, I've recently made corporate films to promote adoption and foster care for The Royal Borough of Greenwich, and Music Videos for Bright Light Bright Light (featuring Elton John) and Slow Knights (featuring Del Marquis from the Scissor Sisters).  

I have been co-producing a feature film about ficitonal but famous gay-Premiership footballers with my colleagues at and hope to shoot it very soon.
