I was born in London in 1975, a twin to Marc - my sister remarked upon hearing the news she had two little brothers "They're not my brothers, they're Peter Rabbit's".
Moving to Gloucestershire in 1979, I grew up in the rolling hills of the Cotswolds, attending Catholic school in Gloucester where I was known for my showing off and prancing about on stage ability (I did Drama, Theatre Studies AND Performing Arts).
During the next 20 odd years of work I pursued a career in the Music Industry, first in retail and then for a Major record company where I learned all about design, brand, creativity, team work and an eye for detail:
"I spent 9 years at BMG (subsequently SonyBMG) during which time I worked with such diverse artists as Lisa Stansfield, Annie Lennox, Faithless, Eurythmics & Dido.
With 5.5 years experience at Apple (at their European HQ in London) I have an informed understanding of image, brand, style and design in today's brand conscious world."
Apparently I am fast becoming known for my ability to capture the life and spirit of today's brands, with photoshoots for urban fashion labels like Fresh Ego Kid, children's outdoor adventure kit with LittleLife and Regency period house portfolios like Cheddon Corner to my name.
I shoot with a Canon EOS 7D.
