That’s me in a nutshell!
I started at 14 with fashion and at fifteen with music.... and those two passions have accompanied me into my sixty eighth year with the same curiosity, excitement and unrelenting ardour that I started out with.
Gill Deleuze intimated that creativity is the process of ‘constantly becoming’ How amazing! I believe that the blank page, the moment between nothing and something is one of the most exciting places to be, where everything is possible and anything can happen. It's been my preferred drug of choice. Time lost in any pursuit wether it’s being creative, sport, reading, watching a film or enjoying sex, that loss of time and place is the closest we ever get to becoming immortal. How often have we said to ourselves “I was enjoying the moment so much that I lost all track of time” Creativity is my way of constantly becoming and forgetting time.
Born in the fifties, I was as a hippie teenager in Londons swinging sixties, a rock n rolling singer in some 70’s bands touring around England, a post punk new romantic in 80’s New York, a confused suit wearing yuppie writing jingles for large corporations in Hamburg in the late 80’s, a rebellious grunge wearing creative consultant and composer in 90’s Amsterdam, a studio owner and wanna be graphic designer in Berlin at the beginning of the noughties, became a mentor for kids in under privileged areas of the world, teaching film music together with a bunch of like minded film makers late 2000 until now... Always walking the freelance tight rope has been both exciting and daunting.... ‘I don’t know what really, really happens at the end of the road, but my trip is mad, I ain't finished I've got loads.’
