News & Current Affairs (2-10 min items) and Camerawork

Between 1991 And 1997 I worked as a freelance Producer/Cameraman in conflict zones. The bulk was in the former Yugoslavia, where I covered the Croatian, Bosnian and Kosovar war for, in total, about three years. I did stints in the former Soviet Union, primarily Chechenya and Nagorno Karabah but also stories from the Artic circle through to Khabarosk and the Don. In 1994 I covered Haiti and later the Rwandan refugee crisis in Zaire. During these five years I broke news of 2 big massacres in Croatia, Russian dope dealing grannies in Moscow, Siberian oil lakes and Czech child prostitutes amongst others. In 2003, 2005 and then 2007 I was in Iraq making documentaries and then in Afghanistan.



Other

(Before 1990) Low budget dramas/ pop-promos on 16mm and 8mm film. Technician and 16mm tuitor for Oxford Film and Video Makers. Co-directed 'Safe Haven', documentary for the British Refugee Council. At the age of 18, I produced and directed 'Jerome' a 60 min. low budget drama, screened at Edinburgh Fringe Film Festival. Producer/Director 'Red Centre' documentary on Central Australia, screened Edinburgh Festival and selection for the ICA Good Video Guide. And I made super 8mm horror and Sci-Fi movies from 14 years old.
