I’m a musician, writer and film-maker. I’ve produced and directed a lot of TV, produced two albums, worked as a journalist on The Times and just about to publish my first novel – a supernatural thriller.
I don’t know if it counts for much, but I’ve had rats running across my feet in an Indian leper colony, swam in a volcano, been bugged by MI5 (allegedly), threatened with a machete, got drunk with Normandy Vets, interviewed everyone from Noam Chomsky to Michael Caine, and played piano with Brian Wilson and Paul McCartney in their homes.
I run the Young Directors Film School with my wife, making film shorts with secondary school students in East London. We are taking some of our screenplays to Hollywood for 3 months this year. At some point this year, I’ll also be releasing a compilation of TV and film music by my old mentor, Romano Chorizo.
In short, I’ve been around a bit. Maybe too much. Hope you enjoy these accounts of my exploits.
