I’m an independent writer and filmmaker. My main focus is Raya Films, an enterprise I co-founded with screenwriter-producer Caroline Spence back in 2004.
I haven’t always worked in the film business, something I see as a bonus, since I’m able to draw experience from many other fields, both technical and creative. Indeed, I feel privileged to have delved into many strange worlds, and even obsessions, from ‘extreme’ sports (I use the word cautiously out of respect for those who genuinely push the boundaries!) to painting, photography and spending outrageous amounts time as a part-time surf bum and musician (guitarist).
Now, film consumes most of my time and energy and it feels like a good place to be, despite the requisite battles and downsides that come with the territory. Do join me in my quest to make ‘indie’ films.
