I work as a freelancer making TV programmes and documentaries which is basically story telling. I am a proud Londoner, born and bread. I have been lucky to travel with work, recently in Belfast, Tokyo, and many American and European cities. I am a ‘foodie’, enjoy cooking and collecting recipe’s on my travels. I am also a massive music fan and record collector with as a love of cinema and filming so naturally obsessed with London’s Rock and Roll and Film history."
