Hi, I’m Mike. I live in London. Since 2009 I've been lucky enough to work with NextShoot making awesome videos for some great clients. I'm also lucky that I work with my business partner Dom who happens to be one of my oldest friends.

We started the company because we wanted a really nice place to work and to make videos we could be proud of and that our clients would love. A few years on and we've got a great team of people, a lovely old warehouse for an office and a really good coffee machine. So I'm one of those really smug people who actually get to like their job. If I didn't - I'd invent a new one.

I like to ride my bike through London and get a whole new perspective on a city I've known and loved for twenty years. I read really pretentious novels, play the guitar badly, sleep a lot and drink wine. I hate smartphones - especially when used by children. I blame social media for most of the ills of the world, especially Brexit and Donald Trump.

I used to work in newspapers but at the age of 25 realised I was unemployable, except at from a great distance. I've done a lot of different work ranging from photography to design to copywriting and filmmaking and production. If I can see one thread running through my work over the years, it's a need to tell stories beautifully and in as few words as possible.
