Born and raised in a small town called Ipswich, approximately an hour and a half outside of London. Having an opportunity to live in America from a very early age, I decided to embark and change my life in 1992, spending the first months in Brooklyn NYC, then moving to Austin Tx in late 92, this where my life took a very interesting turn.

NYC & LA Recoded: “Go Together”

This is a film about people separated by 3,000 miles, but who share a common thread. Through the underground movement of urban running in New York and Los Angeles, Go Together explores two cities – their differences and tensions, and their intertwined passions. What started more than a decade ago as a band of partiers and creators meeting for midnight runs, has transformed and grown up, becoming a movement that is just now realizing it’s true power while deepening the conversation between America’s two greatest cities.
