John is a highly creative, intuitive and capable director who ups the game of every project he's involved with. I have worked with him on and off for the last fifteen years and he is absolutely my go to guy when I need something to look and feel great.

He understands narrative, has a natural flair and is a born storyteller. John has a unique ability to seemingly conjure something amazing from very little and sees opportunity in every nook and cranny of a tight budget and impossible deadline.

John is one of a kind, gets on with everyone and never, and I mean NEVER moans.
