I am a writer, filmmaker, script reader and coach. My background is in broadcast documentary (as a producer/director) and in finance – deal structuring that’s pretty much a carbon copy of film financing structures but more arcane!
I spent many years working at the BBC and followed that with a long stint at a large European financial institutions.
As a coach, I work with creative and finance professionals in various set-ups – independent filmmakers, partners in professional firms, and employees of organisations that range from the very small to the global.
I am especially interested in approaches to leadership and self-determination, and in empowering clients to exercise this quality creatively and resourcefully – whatever their position – so they can work purposefully towards realising their potential.
As a writer, I have contributed in the past to a number of film publications which include MovieMarker, ScenesJournal, and MyFilmClub.
Kinefile.com is a selective archive of my film writing, originally published elsewhere. My recent and current work can be seen on KinoSelect.
