Hello World and welcome to Redhanded. It’s a work in progress and I’m still adding content – so you’ve been warned.
Originally, I trained as an industrial designer but I’ve been lucky enough to spend most of my working life in the animation and film industry, first as an artist and then as a manager. I still keep a foot in the door as an occasional on-set VFX supervisor but otherwise I keep busy these days writing stories.
So far, I’ve finished about a dozen short stories and am working on a couple of novels. The stories often involve the fantastic and macabre. I blame the double bills they used to show in my local cinema as a teenager, which often consisted of a gory Asian martial arts film followed by some equally blood-soaked Hollywood horror movie.
I also take photos. I’m rarely happier than when I’m out somewhere with a camera in hand or, more recently, operating a camera drone.
