Major project:

A story of transformation from the poor southern states to the embodiment of the American Dream. I’ll Never Lie To You is the hybridisation and infiltration of a mass cultural icon into the North East of England. You are invited to dive deep into an immersive multi-channel transmedia experience featuring vintage salon dryers, spacial audio and explore the parasocial relationship and phenomenon of a late 1950s working class hero.


  • With a background in graphic design and music plus a full career in media and advertising, I am interested in storytelling using VR 360 filmmaking, AV/VR, projection and spacial sound techniques of to create immersive installations, and employing innovative forms of storytelling and narrative experience to engage audiences in new ways.
