I am an award-winning documentary maker. I have been travelling the world making films about the rich and powerful for the past 20 years. I produce, direct, write and present. I do not hold the camera or edit, and love working with creative, multilingual editors and camera-people.
Last year BBC World showed my two-part series “Inside the World of China’s Super-Rich.” I made it because I wanted to show how the rise of the super-rich mirrored the rise of China itself. I was most struck by the humility of China’s dollar-billonaires, and their hard work.
I am near completion on a 70 minute feature documentary titled “Wang Jianlin – China’s top Entrepreneur, which is launching Q4 2014.
I am also writing a book titled “One in a BIllion – Inside the World of China’s Super-Rich” – contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any interest in publishing this in your own language or territory.
My most recent book is about a very different subject: Off the Grid: Inside the Movement for More Space, Less Government, and True Independence in Modern America (Penguin, New York).
