    I grew up in Southport, in the Northwest of England, before moving to London in the mid 1980s to work in the film industry. I worked for Rank Films, working on the release of films including Platoon, Robocop, A Chorus Line, The Name of the Rose, and many others.

    In 1988 I changed direction, leaving editing to become a visual effects designer / model maker at Shepperton Film Studios, working on films including Batman, Prince of Thieves and Judge Dredd. After a short stint of producing and directing I moved away from London in 2000.

    In the early 90s I worked as seasonal display operator for Pain's Fireworks, helping fire displays in and around London, including Alexander Palace and Battersea Park.

    I published my first book, Firework Art, in 2005. Other books have included FIRE, Fascination, Firework & Festival, Challerton, and The Call of the Siren.
