(Practical Screenwriting: The Short II)
I became a film-maker at 21, when I hitch-hiked across Europe with a Super 8mm camera. Returning to London, I set up my first production. Little did I know what I was undertaking. But a year later I had finished my first 16mm, a fairy-tale, shot in a semi abandoned school in Chelsea.. Since then I have gone on to write, direct, and produce feature films and shorts. In 2000, I relocated to Thailand to make Butterfly Man. Most recently, this year I completed a new film The Attic - a ghost story.

Ever since i arrived in Bangkok in 2000, I have given regular weekend workshops and courses in Screen Acting, developing an approach that addresses the demands of cinema (auditioning), and the profession. I have also written and delivered courses in screenwriting and producing. In London, I taught film and media courses for several years at various institutions, including Richmond-upon-Thames College.
