I've worked as a photographer, DJ and writer for many years. At some point I wondered what would happen if I combined these three skills - that's how I ended up making films.
Below you will find a selection of documentary films I've produced , including a full-feature documentary about CHANGE plus shorter films about the COP25, LIFE IN THE DESERT, QUITTING SMOKING IN LOCKDOWN, an ORGANIC FARMER, WISE TREES, CLOWNING and HAPPINESS. Visit my YOUTUBE channel for a full list.
Most of us struggle with things we cannot change, such as the inevitability of death. We also struggle with things we can change, like finding a more meaningful job, a happier relationship or dealing with ethical issues such as buying fair-trade clothes.
I set out on a journey to discover why we are this way. I travelled to four different countries and talked to eight very different people: A mother, a school teacher, a rapper, a Buddhist, a yoga teacher, a clown, an ex-banker turned sailor and a funeral celebrant.
Anicca is a very personal, honest and inspirational documentary about key issues regarding our struggle with change: fear, courage, trust and the big challenge of accepting reality as it is.

CHANGE IS HAPPENING, a short documentary about the COP25 in Madrid in 2019. Including the main demonstration with 500,000 participants and 'disco disobedience' on the Gran Via, one of the main shopping streets in the Spanish capital.
Thanks to climate change, deforestation and monoculture, the dry areas in the world are expanding rapidly. Soon, many of us might need to choose between leaving or adapting. So what is it like, life in the desert? To find out more, I visited David Dene at the beginning of August 2020. David lives in the semi-arid desert in Almería, Spain. He took me for a walk around his home.
During the lockdown in spring 2020, I decided to quit smoking. I made a little film about the process.
A documentary about JOSÉ - an old Andalusian farmer who was born under a fig tree and has worked his land for over 60 years in an organic way. Spanish with English subtitles.
Not a documentary, but beautiful images from a forest and a story from The Little Buddha.
