About Me

Born Liverpool in 1947, his early years were spent in Australia and New Zealand. After a BA degree in English Lit: and a disastrous attempt at ‘sheep shearing’, he returned to England where he trained at RADA as an actor. This was followed by two years in repertory theatre before he was ‘unmasked’ and joined the UK feature film industry in 1967.

As an assistant editor and assistant dubbing editor he worked on many feature films including “Cul de Sac” (Dir: Roman Polanski), “Day of the Jackal” (Dir Fred Zinnemann) “Nicholas & Alexandra” (Dir: Franklin J. Schaffner), “Ryan’s Daughter” (Dir: David Lean), “2001 Space Odyssey” (Dir: Stanley Kubrick) etc.

An interest in ‘short form’ led him to becoming an advertising commercials editor for some of the major agencies and production companies in London before he was lured into becoming an Agency TV Producer. During this period (and to remain sane) he wrote and co’ produced a variety of short films for cinema including “Interruptions” which was released with “The Night Porter” (starring Dirk Bogarde and Charlotte Rampling).

A long period as an Exec: ww TV Producer in advertising at J. Walter Thompson followed, working with major multi- national clients such as Debeers, Shell, Jaguar, Aston Martin etc. Inside a box of dubious awards is a ‘Century Icon’ achievement for producing the world famous DeBeers Diamond ‘Shadows’ campaign. (so much for ‘bling bling’)

Now with age; sanity has returned, and he has re-kindled his long held passion for writing with a scripted children’s fantasy movie “Monster & Me”, optioned and awaiting development, after winning a Screenplay Finalist Award at the London International Film Awards 2013.
