    As a writer, Kieron worked on the TV drama series Family Affairs before moving to the Royal Court Theatre where he workshopped several plays. One piece of work evolved into a feature film, Venus and Mars, which Kieron directed in 2001 and was then selected by the British Council to tour film festivals around Europe.

    As an editor, Kieron worked on a TV documentary series for the Discovery Channel called A Shore Thing. This was followed by a feature-length documentary South Coast, a pilot for Channel Four called Goddesses, and a pilot for Australian Broadcasting Corp called Risky Business. This then led Kieron to cutting videos for clients such as British Airways, Sony BMG, British Film Institute, BAFTA, film directors Alan Parker, Hugh Hudson and producer David Puttnam.
