I read English at Birkbeck College whilst still manging to tour as an actor followed by a Masters in Film-making at Goldsmiths. I co-wrote Great Grandfather Spirit published by HarperCollins. I spent a blissful time on a number of different Native American Reservations where my interest in the environment was rekindled. The history of Native Americans clearly shows they had a unique relationship and connection to Mother Earth. Sadly, we did not learn from them. I have made a drama on the homeless in London. I am in the process of making new shorts with an eye on two feature films I hope to direct within the next couple of years.
