Work history


Designer & Director

Jul 2015
  • I am a designer that creates moving and static image work on screens of all sizes. I have extensive international experience with Broadcast Design, Brand Identity Development, Cultural Projects, Documentaries, Advertising, TV Promotions, Visual Effects and Live-action Direction. I can deliver concepts, creative direction and finished solutions. I create short form content for broadcast and digital media and can operate as a hybrid producer/editor or 'preditor'. My work is also channel neutral, meaning that I can create content for many platforms.


Head OF Design

Documentary Channel

Jan 2005 - Jun 2013
  • I was a founding member of the Documentary Channel, which launched in 2006 on the Dish Network. I originated work that defined the look of the channel on air and online. I created branding solutions and logos. I also designed network IDs, promo packages, programming interstitials, collaborated on developing themed sub-brands, and originated collateral marketing materials for print and web campaigns.
