Introduction

I am an archaeologist, filmmaker and photographer. These pages give you a flavour of the work I do as an archaeologist and as a filmmaker/ photographer.

My career as an archaeologist has so far taken me from studying at Liverpool, to working in Southampton and York, to collaborating with archaeologists and latterly leading tours in St Petersburg. I lead walks and give talks on many aspects of the archaeology and history of York. I am currently employed as City Archaeologist by City of York Council.

In my creative work outside archaeology I often work collaboratively with other artists, particularly as a member of Geodesic Arts. I have a long-standing friendship and creative collaboration with Benedict Phillips. And I am working with Kane Cunningham and John Pattison on a series of short films.
