I started out as a reporter for a local newspaper in Yorkshire. I then trained as a sound engineer at The Beatles producer George Martin‘s Air Studios in London before taking a Post Grad Diploma in Film & Television Production in Sheffield.

I was picked for a  2 year producer trainee-ship at BBC Television Centre and in my time there produced a documentary for See Hear, A LIVE 3hr outside broadcast for BBC 1, and 52 x 30min science and tech series with ‘Black Mirror‘ creator Charlie Brooker.

I set up a production company and forged client relationships with RBS, NatWest and Churchill. For seven years I produced and directed the presenter led Summer Big Screens Opera & Ballet broadcasts from The Royal Opera House to cinemas across the UK, Europe and US presented by Gareth Malone.

My company has been in business now for 11 years.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]        [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_empty_space height=”64px”][vc_single_image image=”63″ img_size=”528×658″ alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_rounded” onclick=”link_image” css_animation=”flipInX”][vc_column_text][/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][ut_header style=”pt-style-1″ align=”left” title=”tv Work” accent=”rgba(30,115,190,0.01)” title_color=”#1e73be” lead_accent_color=”rgba(30,115,190,0.01)” lead_color=”rgba(30,115,190,0.01)” css=”.vc_custom_1510957304561{margin-bottom: 0px !important;border-bottom-width: 0px !important;padding-bottom: 0px !important;}”][/ut_header][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner][vc_column_text]
