Versatile and hard-working, I have a solid background of 16 years in Production. I specialise in promos, rebrands, sponsorship idents and TVCs with multi-platform experience encompassing radio, social, online and DOOH. I also have experience in long-form programming, in high-pressure studio and location environments. I am practised in dealing with internal and external stakeholders of all levels, whilst still enjoying the nuts and bolts of shoot production. In recent years, I have helped develop and support a team of talented Creatives, Directors, Designers and Production staff through a period of major creative, technical and financial challenges. I approach all projects with practicality, flexible thinking, diplomacy and perspective - and if at all possible, with a sense of humour!
