About Me.

I write.

My award-winning film work includes the short film It’s Natural To Be Afraid (2011), viewable here, and the feature film ‘Wilderness’ (2017), currently out for sale following a successful festival run.  You can find my filmmaking site here

I am the co-founder and co-host of the renowned film podcast The Cinematologists.

I write about music documentaries for The Quietus, and about film more broadly for Beneficial Shock, Directors Notes and others.

I am a contributing editor to MAI: Journal of Feminism and Visual Culture, and have conducted long-form interviews with filmmakers Hope Dickson Leach and Lynn Shelton.

On this site you will find details of current projects and articles alongside links to where you can find evidence of my bold claims.

My research interests include Film Education, Music Documentaries and Concert Films, and Podcasting.

By day I am a senior lecturer in Film at the School of Film & Television, Falmouth University, where I also lead a research and innovation programme on pedagogy. I teach screenwriting and filmmaking on the BA Film and MA Film & Television courses.

I have a beautiful wife and a daughter, Beth and Tessa, a cheeky dog called Bailey (aka Chaos Dog) and we all live in Cornwall, UK.
