A Brief Synopsis
I was born the youngest son of a Pastor and as a consequence moved around the country to several different locations and schools.
I always had an interest in cars and started my working life as an apprentice in the Motor Trade, acquiring my professional qualifications, and moving up to Management at a very early age, and moving around the country with work. I was a regional manager for eleven years responsible for five car and commercial vehicle workshops, two bodyshops, and its 200 plus associated staff, also seventy six sub contract repairers. I subsequently had my own successful business supplying and installing vehicle alarms, car phones, and in-car entertainment, before going back into car dealerships with BMW, Porsche and other various manufactures.
After a number of years I left the Motor Trade and pursued my hobby as a business videoing events and weddings. The business developed quickly and I moved into producing TV adverts, free lance demonstrations for Grass Valley/Canopus at NAB Las Vegas, IBC Amsterdam and various exhibitions in the UK. I set up a training school for Video/TV editing from various manufactures, and also covered lighting and audio techniques, training university, college, school, hospital, professional, TV staff and hobbyists
I have subsequently had to retire early due to ill health and trust God for our future. We have found Him to be faithful and He has supplied our need.

Studio One Productions was the name of my business, and as it was known by many people and search engines it therefore has been retained. The website has thousands of visits a year from over 140 different countries, so I trust my observations and comments on here and my blog are stimulating and helpful. Please feel free to contact me via the contact page.
I'm a Christian, but I'm not religious; in fact I'm a friend of a man called Jesus. I gave my life to Jesus Christ at a very early age and this has had a great impact on my focus and lifestyle. Whilst having been in church leadership for many years I strongly believe that Gods gifts to us are to be exercised in our daily life and not just confined to church meetings. It is a life style and not a weekend suit to put on and take off. I have been privileged to see miracles of healings, setting free from drug addiction, and demonisation; and Gods provision for us over the years.
This is just a very brief synopsis of my life which has been so varied and fulfilled, to which I give God all the glory.
