About me
I am an multiple award winning writer/director and producer and have made many of my own films. I am the chairman of Classic Media Entertainment a London based Production Company (www.cmefilms.co.uk).

I have produced, directed and written my own films including awarding winning films such as the internationally acclaimed documentary "The Hollywood Graffiti Gown" which had its world premiere at the Lake Arrowhead Film Festival in California USA and fought off stiff competetion to take the award for best International Documentary. The one of a kind historical documentary project had the participation of over 450 of the world's leading A list celebrities including Elizabeth Taylor, Whoopi Goldburg , Bette Midler, Melanie Griffith, Maureen O'Hara, Nancy Sinatra, Barbra Streisand, Eva Longoria, Joan Collins, Jennifer Love Hewitt and many more. The documentary also includes Interviews I conducted with celebrities such as Tom Bosley, Carol Channing, Alison Arngrim, Angela Lansbury, Stella Stevens, Wren Brown, Jane Withers and Ann Margaret

I also Directed & Produced a documentary on the famous charitable event "The Life Ball" and shooting was on location in Vienna Austria. The film was later screened at the Lake Arrowhead film festival in California USA and the CANNES film festival. The official documentary had the participation of many of Europe's influential people including royalty. The film includes interviews with many international celebrities including Elton John, Heidi Klum, Liza Minnelli, Randy Crawford and Donatella Versace

I acquired the rights to the infamous British criminal, Mad Frankie Fraser. Fraser was certified insane 3 times and is reputed to have killed 40 people. He served over 42 years in prison and was alleged to be a member of the infamous torture gang. It is said he pulled out his victim's teeth out with pliers. For over 50 years he was a key figure in London's criminal Underworld. I made a feature length documentary on the criminal and during the research for the film I faced death threats on a daily basis. I have recently completed a screenplay for the feature film titled "Mad Frankie Fraser"
