To say I’m useless at blogging is an understatement. It’s so understated it’s underwhelming. It’s been over a month and a half since my last blog post because, well, I just haven’t been doing anything interesting. Unless you count my new job of course.

If you cast your mind back to my last blog post (yes I know it’s over two months ago but I’ve been busy! ish) I mentioned the upcoming film festival that I run. Well it happened and it went very well, thank you for asking.
One of the things I most enjoy about being a creative is to support others in their creative endeavours. That’s why, just over four years ago, I launched the Hellfire Film Festival.
Today was supposed to be a busy day. An exciting and productive day. Unfortunately things didn’t go exactly to plan.
Back in 2004 I was on the management committee of a television production company called Turning Point Productions. We produced a TV series called “In Focus” which promoted disability awareness.
Yesterday was without doubt the hardest day of my life being there to see someone you love so dearly draw their last breath right in front of you. But I know that last breath also meant my Grandma breathed out the last of the pain and suffering that’s dogged her for the past year or so.
It was an honour to be asked to join the crew for CHRISTMAS SLAY, an upcoming feature-length festive slasher movie by my talented friend and colleague Steve Davis.
In the past fortnight I’ve have the incredible privilege to be part of the film crew to shoot two WHEATUS gigs, one in Margate and one in Milton Keynes.
Six weeks ago I began a brand new life in Folkestone, Kent, 250 miles from home and it was the best thing I could have done.
Eight years ago I did the honourable thing and proposed to my beautiful partner, we’re still together so obviously she said “yes”, however we didn’t get married. It took me another seven and a half years to actually pull my finger out and start organising our big day.
