His projects have ranged from first commercial director of from Quentin Tarantino’s production company, A Band Apart, in 1995 to Steve Barron’s second unit director on Hallmark’s TV special Arabian Nights, and short films for E4 hit series, Misfits, to his commercial credits for such clients as Coca-Cola, Nike, Budweiser, Orange, The World Wildlife Fund, Gatorade, BBC-TV, Channel 4, and MTV.
