I am production designer working in film, television drama and commercials. I have been nominated for both BAFTA and RTS Best Production Design awards and 'Life on Mars' won the EMMY for Best Drama Series and the BAFTA Audience Award.
I'm equally at home managing large set builds and art departments across numerous countries or small location shoots with less resources. Whatever the challenge, I pride myself on being an experienced team-player that understands and works to facilitate the requirements of other departments whilst being a highly creative and hands-on designer who loves the process of film-making and storytelling over everything else. See what other filmmakers have said about me on the References pages.
Some of my recent recent work includes the feature film 'Spinning Man' in LA starring Pierce Brosnan and Guy Pearce, the period drama 'Genius' starring Geoffrey Rush and shot in Prague about the life of Albert Einstein for National Geographic Channel and 'The Halcyon', a WWII drama for ITV/Sony Pictures in London.
Other features include the award winning 'The Autopsy of Jane Doe' with 'Troll Hunter' Director André Øvredal starring Emile Hirsch and Brian Cox and ‘The Quiet Ones’: a Hammer Horror directed by John Pogue starring Jared Harris and Sam Claflin. Click Résumé for full list.
In commercials I have been working with Knucklehead, Dark Energy and Pretty Bird on ads for Lančome, Nespresso and 1800 Tequila and I made this lovely period promo for ITV's Coronation Street with Director Caswell Coggins.
I hold an 01-B VISA to work in the United States and am a member of the IATSE 800 Art Directors Guild. I am also a full voting-member of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA).
