Film and TV Director

Biography

The last two years I have been directing TV shows mainly in the US..last one was GOTHAM before that….The MENTALIST, CSI, FALLING SKIES, STRIKEBACK and many many more. I went to school in the Yorkshire town of Holmfirth. Left school with very little to boast about…and then to a middle of the road art school where I discovered I probably wasn’t going to be an artist. Somehow or other I ended up doing what I do today. I began working in documentaries, from there to drama and shot a movie with Rachel Weisz along the way. How I got from there to here…its not even a long story, but may be an interesting one. More later.
