Having achieved my Diploma in Graphic Design with merits in photography and 3D design I then went on to work as a graphic designer. I spent a lot of my spare time playing keyboards in a band touring the UK. I also studied Shotokan Karate, Lau Gar Kung Fu and Wing Chun Kung Fu. I achieved a black belt in Wing Chun and spent some time teaching this style.

My fascination with special effects and movie props tempted me to build my own life-size Boba Fett costume. Most of my time is now spent in my studio, making props, sculpting, mould making or maintaining this website. I'm helped by my very talented Wife who is responsible for making all the soft props and, who also wraps and packs everything before it's shipped.
