I began my working life writing fictions and songs but then I got distracted into the animation industry and spent the next thirty years or so working as an animator and animation director. I trained under Ivor Wood, the creator of such classics as Magic Roundabout, The Wombles and Postman Pat. After leaving Ivor’s studio I worked in some of the leading London studios, including The Richard Williams Studio and Hallas & Bachelor. In the mid-1980s he began working freelance, creating animations for innovative music promos and commercials, before being asked to be the Animation Director on “Hellraiser 2: Hellbound” and “Clive Barker’s Nightbreed”.

During the filming of these feature films I realised the potential for computer imagery and animation that was rapidly developing, so in the mid-1990s I re-trained in computer animation. Since then I have worked on TV series, commercials, and feature films, such as “Harry Potter And The Secret Chamber” and the cult Norwegian classic “Free Jimmy”.

I never stopped writing, and will be publishing a collection of short stories and essays and a cd of my songs in the spring.

I live with my wife and two cats in South West Kerry, in Ireland, where I own an old stone farmhouse on a small island. We while away our summer weekends tending our small flock of Soay sheep there and gazing at the beautiful Kerry landscape and the great expanse of the Atlantic Ocean.
