My interest in moving pictures began at an early age when I would spend many holiday or any sick days I could pull at my parent’s place of work on Bristol Street, under the counter in Birmingham’s first video library. Equipped with a Betamax player and 7” TV screen and allowed to watch any film I could physically reach would nurture my love of film.

My Father’s business was also one of the first to sell domestic and professional video equipment and he would bring video cameras and basic editing equipment home for me to play with at weekends. I have been filming and editing moving pictures in some way or another since primary school.
