I have had a successful career in broadcast television and the broader media industry for over twenty-five years, both here in Australia and the U.K. where I have performed a number of roles on a variety of productions; series producer, senior producer, line producer, story producer, director, writer, cameraman, editor, sound recordist and floor manager. These positions have provided me with experience in a broad range of areas including creative development and production (often to tight deadlines), managing budgets and the supervision of corporate sponsor relations and other key stakeholders.
I have developed a valuable skill set over this time that would be highly desirable in a number of different positions within the media industry. I am now focused on furthering my career in the role of producer in all genres.
I have 20 years experience in the Film and TV Industry, primarily in the Costume Department. More recently i have been involved in the Accounts department as well!
