His credits as a first AD include numerous feature films, such as The Mummy, The Mummy Returns, Alexander and Syriana, as well as the television series Minder, Agatha Christie's Poirot, Sea of Souls, the revived Doctor Who and Torchwood.

He has also worked as a location manager (For Your Eyes Only, Octopussy and Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom) and as a production manager (Doctor Who).
