Welcome to my hub of stuff!
I’m an experienced designer, builder of puppets, sets, props and creatures for TV, film and theatre.
I’m also an illustrator and sculptor.
Please browse my galleries and CV. Feel free to contact me for more information, or to discuss commissions and custom jobs.
I have worked as a designer and puppet maker for many years, but my original training was actually as an actor at Bretton Hall. Something I still enjoy dipping into from time to time.
As a designer I have worked for a wealth of companies on some very exciting projects. These have included the BBC, Millenium FX, Tiger Aspect, Working Title, Sky 1, Merlin Entertainment, Life Cast, Talk to the Hand, The Daryl Worbey Studios, Samuel Wyer, Illyria, New Theatre Royal, among many others.
I also do many individual commissions and like most creatives, I try to do a lot of personal projects, just for fun.
This website hopefully provides an overview of some of my work, but if you would like to see all my work from over the years, feel free to pop over to papermoth.org for my full in depth portfolio – whilst I continue to build this site.
I am delighted and very proud to have been the Puppet Designer and builder and wrangler on a very exciting major new CBeebies TV show, Feeling Better: airing early next year! Stay tuned for updates later in the year!
Currently enjoying working as a fabricator/puppet builder with the lovely folks at Anarchy special effects company in Watford.
For a lot of 2017 I was very lucky to enjoy working on some amazing projects with the lovely folks at Millennium FX. The projects ranged from from TV shows, adverts, Dr Who, to a huge theatre show and theme park attractions.

I very much enjoyed being a part of the team that developed and built the creatures for this awesome independent film project, The Truthful Phone. Headed by Andy Heath and Iestin Evans of Talk to the Hand Puppets.
This exciting short film, narrated by Michael Sheen, recently wrapped and will be released soon.
