Born in 1966 I have worked in animation since making my first film 'Last Respects' in 1980.  This won several awards and was subsequently bought by Channel 4 with whom I went on to make a number of short films.  These led to directing and animating commercials, title sequences and pop videos.  I have directed children's  series, including the BAFTA award winning 'Clangers' alongside working as a freelance animator.
