I work from my home-studio in the stunning Lune Valley between the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales... a perfect base for occaissional skiving days fellwalking or paragliding.

I started freelancing as 'Lunar' in '96 after graduating in arts/media at Newcastle. Since those early pioneering days of cinepak/Macromedia/CD-rom/html1 etc I've worked on a massive range of digital media projects for clients of every size and sector; from sole traders to national NGOs and international brands.

Outside of commercial practice I work on occaissional indie film projects and documentaries. My short film The POW screened at festivals in Moscow, Dublin, Bucharest and beyond winning awards including Best Cinematography and Viewers' Choice.

My world class 1Gbps broadband fibre connection is the result of years of involvement with non profit community broadband company 'B4RN', for which I also proudly sit on the management team.
