Personal profile

My moving-image work is concerned with an exploration of human identity in urban environments, city morphology, soundscape ecology and the juxtaposition of natural and manufactured forms.

With 19 years experience of video production, I have created both commissioned and self-initiated projects. I have collaborated with musicians, sound artists and theatre companies to produce projections for live performances, screenings in public spaces, music videos and video art.
