After recently turning 28, bubbling under the surface is a need to hit the road, travelling across another continent, exploring the sights and sounds it has to offer (it’s been too long)! Since returning from a round the world trip in 2011 with my girlfriend Rebecca, I have been living in Bristol working as a cameraman and editor for Immediate Media. The content of my job is very varied and I enjoy working across subjects such as astronomy, history, triathlon and weddings. The aim is to film two personal documentary projects next year, one for my Mum’s charity http://www.himalayanchildren.co.uk/ and another for a yet to be decided subject. Watch this space.

I don’t have many photos of myself because of travelling solo a lot. I used to keep a kind of video diary in New Zealand, really just as a personal project, to try to help me keep my sanity. So I screen grabbed this. It was wet, the path was a stream, I was not sure how far I had to go, where I was going to sleep, and was a long way from other people. As that was a large part of that time, this seemed an appropriate face to be pulling. In the end the video diaries turned out to be more of a record of not much sanity!

I’m just a guy who sometimes travels, sometimes works and tries to enjoy life!
I’m a film-maker when I work, and a general adventurer when I don’t. I try to get outside and see new stuff and meet new people as often as possible, whatever I’m doing. Other people rock, so I jump at a chance to join in with something they do that I haven’t before, and I always try to invite people to join me for whatever I do!
I reckon we should all knock down our garden fences and have shared gardens.

I am a 21 year old aspiring actor who dabbles in photography and cares a little too much about his hair. At around the age of thirteen I found out that the only thing I was any good at was making a fool of myself on stage. In pursing this I met some great people, had some amazing experiences and made my way into drama school. Hoping to take my career in acting further I have dropped it all and disappeared into the wilds of Canada on my own for a year, bracing the politeness and the cold to explore some of the most amazing landscapes in the world. Laid back is commonly how people describe me, too lazy to give a reasonable reaction is more accurate though.
