My interest in Documentary Filmmaking began whilst I was working as a voluntary Art Therapist in the early 1990's. The opportunity arose when I was working as a social worker in Edinburgh to use video as part of my case work. I developed a series looking at the transition from hostel living to supported accommodation. I went back into full time Education in 2001 to read for an MA in Visual Anthropology at Manchester University where I developed a number of projects in the UK, Scotland and Republic of South Africa.

In 2002 I made a documentary film in Lesotho, which screened in a number of festivals including the Munich International Documentary Festival and The Black International Cinema Festival where the film won the award for Best Documentary on a Marginalized People.

In October 2003 I returned to Lesotho where I made a promotional film about the Morija Festival. Early 2004 saw me back in Lesotho to produce material for The Television Trust For the Environment and Geoffrey Payne & Associates as well as a short film for The Sechaba Media Unit about Menkhoaneng, the birth place of King Moshoeshoe.

I directed a short feature for the DVD release of Jinnah, starring Christopher Lee. I continue my work interests with Devlin & Kennedy Crow Productions on the project 'Word Made Flesh' for the MS Society.

In May 2004 I began work at Napier University researching for the on-line delivery of a Masters programme in Screen Project Development. My technical and creative skills have been brought into use on this and other projects at the university and I continue to work part time as the Learning Technologist for Screen Academy Scotland.

Between 2004 and now, I have been developing projects and consulting on streaming video content for education.

My key areas of interest are Community, Education, Documentary Production, Health, Traditional Healing and Ritual Practice, Conflict Resolution, Participatory Video, Communications and Design.
