Audio-Visual, IT and Web - Production, Training and Support
Hi there! I'm passionate about technology - video, audio and web - and helping others to reach their creative goals through thoughtful and innovative digital media.
This site is here to showcase some of the work I've created or been involved in creating. If you'd like to contact me there are links at the bottom of the page.
I'm an experienced video maker, with nearly ten years' experience in all areas from planning and pre-production, through to filming and editing.

The OASIS project is a research initiative looking at improving the quality of life of older people, through new technology.
The film, designed to be viewed in an immersive 'Virtual Reality' suite, is one part of a range of tools used to prepare older travellers for a holiday to a new city - in this case Florence, Italy.
Audio can be a more powerful medium than video, but is often sadly overlooked. It's true, the pictures really are better! I'm an experienced audio producer, editor and voice artist.

I am, and have always been, a technology enthusiast, and my interest in web design goes back longer than I care to remember! Here are some of the more recent sites I've been involved in putting together, aside from this one, of course.
