    For some time after Agricultural college, I traveled, with the Free festival convoy, and with Sadhus in India, after studying Herbalism, I started a career in Film, wrote several shorts and cut 16mm film in a ram shackle edit suite in Seymour st. Then moved on to direct my own works, on Aurveda, Yoga, and some pop promos. Later with Rubber Moon Productions, principally Directing a Documentary on Hats called Headcase, I won the Reely Film Competition for my camerawork
    (16mm, Super 8 and 35mm), and started to shoot stuff on the 'new' Digital formats.
    Working with Spillinglight Films we made several films in India and Taiwan on the Kumbh Mela and the Yenshui Fireworks festivals respectively.
    I returned to Help Gulrukh Khan produce and edit a huge work on Dolphins, called Blue Velvet in Sinai, and later Mantra for the Millennium for the Hinduja Brothers. This hard-hitting environmental short was a forerunner of Al Gore's 'An Inconvenient Truth', which took a few pages from our work.
    Since then I have become a keen Urban Beekeeper, and writer. I organize events for a local fundraising group called the Kensal Town Fund; we raise monies for local and international charities in various venues in west London.
