Production Experience

Welcome to the CV of someone enthralled and obsessive over all facets of the production process.  This predilection has come with the schooling in a variety of skills to better enable the creation of short-form live action media such as TVC’s, Branded Content, Corporate Video,   Behind-The-Scenes & Music Promos and even Radio Ads.

This experience has been gained working in agency environments, broadcasters & production companies for the likes of H&O, FCB Inferno, R/GA, Fold 7, Sky Creative, 4 Creative, IMG, Kream and Stink across a variety of budget levels.

As well as working in these environments, I’ve independently produced projects for clients across various sectors always ensuring high levels of production value.    I pride myself on being extremely versatile, thorough and an encouraging team member, passionate about the production process and how I can best contribute to ensuring the finest end results.
