I work as photographer and video maker and management consultant for arts and creative organisations.

Having originally studied photography I moved into film exhibition. This led to me being appointed as the first Head of Film / Senior Curator Film at the National Media Museum where I was responsible for creating Pictureville and restoring Cinerama. I then went on to open Harbour Lights Cinema in Southampton and re-open the Everyman Cinema in Hampstead.

In 2002 I moved back to photography becoming managing director of the AOP (Association of Photographers).

Since 2005 I have worked freelance, balancing creative practice and consultancy work.
