I am a Scottish film maker with over 15 years experience in making short films and corporate films. The winner of two Channel 4 talent schemes I enjoy collaborating with others and thinking of interesting ways to blend digital media and share stories.

I graduated from Edinburgh College of Art as they were installing the first suite of PC’s. I travelled and worked abroad widely in my 20’s and did a lot of weird and wonderful jobs including building willow sculptures in Luxembourg and life modelling in Sydney. I returned to London in the hope of getting a sensible job and I completed my Masters in Digital animation. By this time in education you couldn’t escape technology and every room silently buzzed.

The sensible job still didn’t come and instead I found myself working on commissions for my digital animation while also running a small business at Portobello market. I loved living in London but always missed the East coast, friends and family. It was family that took me home and I returned to settle down and have my 2 beautiful girls.

The sensible job finally came in the form of teaching TV production at North East Scotland College.  I do enjoy making my own work and I am always interested in collaborating on creative work, film commissions or educational projects . If you think I can help, please get in touch.
