Work history

Currently

Producer & Honey Bought The House

Objective Productions

Mar 2014
  • 1 x 60mins TX PILOT - Relationships/property format. A first-time house-buying couple are given £15k to help buy their dream home, but only one of them gets to choose the house. I oversaw all aspects, especially establishing the rules and compliance guidelines, plus shooting and then edit producing to delivery.

2014

Series Producer & 24 Hours To Go Broke

Renegade Pictures

Jun 2013 - Mar 2014
  • 5x 60mins Comedy travelogue. In each episode, two stars visit an unfamiliar country with £10k to spend on oddities such as midnight golf in Iceland or sabre dancing in Armenia. I chose the destinations, monitored compliance on location and wrote and edit-produced two shows - "Armenia" (David Baddiel & Richard Herring) and "Bavaria" (Josh Widdicombe & Greg Rutherford.)

2013

Series Producer & The Incredible Mr Goodwin

Objective Productions

Jun 2012 - Mar 2013
  • 5 x 60mins UKTV/Watch. Lavish HD daredevil stunt series shot in the UK & USA. Our London Eye straight-jacket escape made world news headlines - just one of forty stunts that my team and I set up and risk assessed. I hired the team and worked closely with Jonathan Goodwin and three execs to format it. I also edit-produced, storylining the episodes and writing VO.

2011

Series Editor & Daytime

Leopard Films

Nov 2007 - Feb 2011
  • I ran Leopard Films' Daytime department for three years, nurtured our relationship with BBC commissioners and gave opportunities to nascent PDs, APs and researchers. My prime role was to oversee production of the BBC Daytime series "Cash in the Attic" and I personally signed off more than 285 editions in three years, including 126 celebrity shows along with episodes of Car Booty & Filthy Rotten Scoundrels.
