He helped Brian Cosgrove and Mark Hall set up their original studios, putting his editing company into their Albany House premises. There he worked on the very first episode of Danger Mouse as we ll as Jamie and Magic Torch and Chorlton and the Wheelies.
He made the move from editor to director while working in TV commercials making ads for some of the worlds biggest brands, and winning a few awards along the way.
After a spell as a farmer in the Lake District he returned to the BBC where he won a Sony. He moved in to Top Gear for a couple of years before going undercover on a variety of projects. He surfaced in Glasgow where he has been for the last five years first for the BBC then laterly making programmes for ITV and STV.
