Jamie grew up as a country bumpkin, wanted to become a chef and did a spot of presenting before he turned his hand at film directing.
His fondest memories of film school consist of him sitting in his pants either watching or making films whilst trying to make people laugh. Today nothing much has changed, although several years directing commercials and shorts taught him a great deal of actor direction and camera placement.
He has shot all around the world from L.A to Uganda for top brass agencies like AMV BBDO, BBH, McCann Erickson and M&C Saatchi. He loves to make bold films rich in humour and bursting with visual flare, inspired by bizarre experiences and exuberant characters. His films have played in various film festivals and been nominated for an array of awards.
