About me
I’ve been leading multi-disciplined creative teams for 10+ years, setting goals and communicating visions in a large matrix organisation. Always looking for creative opportunities as well as setting objectives and priorities, I'm an open leader who believes in connecting people, simplicity, and that the best content comes from the most content people. I'm driven by keeping the team machine working whilst looking after the individuals within it. I'm passionate not only about great creative execution, but also in finding and creating the simplest processes possible to make this happen. At the BBC I created a huge network of colleagues across all disciplines - from commissioning, through production, marketing and communications. I take great pride in weaving disciplines together to be a creative enabler and conduit so that everyone's happy working together to get the best out of each other. I’m always striving to create working relationships that focus on positivity and joined-up thinking. For me, the simplest way of doing things is usually the smartest, and also the way that ensures happy people working collaboratively in an unencumbered way. It's also the most efficient, and gets the best value out of any project. Sport is my passion outside of work, having played competitive tennis as a junior, and I'm a keen road cyclist, taking part in Europe-wide events to try to pretend that I'm not as old as I am. I'm also a performing and composing musician, and can occasionally be seen appearing in the odd commercial as an 'actor'. Carl's casserole anyone?

    That Peter Crouch PodcastTo mark the return of That Peter Crouch Podcast for Series 3, we helped Peter Crouch to prank his beloved wife, Abbey Clancy, into believing that he had got a tattoo of himself doing his iconic goal celebration – ‘The Robot’… The film sees the footballer sitting in a tattoo parlour as he video calls Abbey, to let her know. Unsurprisingly, she wasn’t best pleased.
