About Us

As an ex circus performer, film armourer and paratrooper with over 40 years experience in the business, I bring a unique level of film, TV and Commercials expertise to the table. I have done over 340 commercials, many of them automotive and have driven cars for every European and Japanese manufacturer with the exception of Rolls Royce!
Whether it’s car/motorcycle chases, high falls, fire, fights or choreography I can draw on the best stunt performers to translate the director’s vision into reality. I am the Chair of the British Stunt Register, http://www.thebritishstuntregister.com I lecture at the National Film School and BAFTA as well as being an after dinner speaker. I consider good communication skills to be paramount as part of that filming process.
I’m also on various film safety boards and I use that experience to ensure that crew and artist safety is a premier consideration both in the planning and on set.
I have extensive experience with helicopters and lately, with drones.
