Having grown up in Milton Keynes Steve swapped the concrete cows for real ones and moved to the North West of England to study drama and computing. This led to a job lasting just over a year before homesickness and lack of somewhere to live brought Steve back to his roots.
In the 3 or so years that followed he forged a successful career as a computer programmer for himself before veering off at a tangent and finding himself quitting his comfortable, but boring and unfulfilling, job and selling his house to begin a new life as a producer on micro budget feature Somnolence in the big smoke.
Tragically and inevitably the money set aside for this new life found its way into this and other risky projects. Penniless and homeless after this baptism of fire Steve found himself once again surrounded by round-a-bouts in the concrete new town of Milton Keynes.
However, what he lacked in money was more than compensated for in experience and contacts. During his brief residency with the Wombles Steve had the good fortune to meet the passionately talented writer Jonnie Hurn and patient, sympathetic and exciting director Paul Hills.
This unlikey trio formed a bond that would stand the test of time to develop the political thriller Take Down the Union Jack. Frustrated by unnecessary obstacles and lack of progress this threesome have embarked on a more commercial project in a bid to get themselves known.
Now Steve is biding his time in Milton Keynes whilst dreaming of a return to the North West to rise like a phoenix from the flames and produce the very British comedy Abra-Ca-Debra.
Steve is a director of Elephant Features Ltd.
