I am a Community Development Researcher for a rural development charity. Before this I gathered 25 years of credits in film and television production in Hollywood USA before working as a news photographer in the UK. I have written a BBC Radio 4 history documentary and directed an award-winning short film. I have many side-projects and interests including founding the British Water Tower Appreciation Society after writing the first East Anglian guide to them. I am a graduate of the MA programme in Management of Creative Enterprise from Norwich University College of the Arts and I have a diploma in Film Production from Vancouver Film School. I live near Halesworth and ride a folding bike.
