About me

I am a filmmaker. Although I hate that phrase. I like to produce beautiful images that tell a story and create a wealth of emotion when coupled with a captivating narrative and inspirational music. I run a very small (The Wife and I) film company in rural Shropshire. We work from home as we have 2 young children. We are always open to meeting and working with people who are as inspired by what they do as us.
