Presently I am working with a number of clients as a Consultant overseeing development and production of their unscripted / studio shows, Covid protocols and supervision . I have worked on a variety of broadcast programmes ranging from Reality, Live, Unscripted, Physical Game, Documentary, Fact Ent, LE, Sport and Studio, I am very suited to setting up large primetime LE shows, that are trying to reinvent the wheel. Recently I worked with Andrew Zein, Clare Barton, Steve Lappin, Lizzie ODonohoe, Susie Dark, Marnie Sirota, Ed Levan, Kim Ross, Andrew Norgate, Deborah Sargeant, Andy Rowe, Sarah Edwards, Karl Warner, Gigi Eligoloff, Ruth Wrigley & Ant Hurford Jones . I launched and secured the series of Masterchef for the BBC with John Silver and Karen Ross at SHINE. In the past I was one of the original team on Big Brother, Celeb BB, Tiny Tearaways, Fame Academy, The Bafta Film Awards, The Lottery Show, The Commonwealth Games, The Paralympics, ICC Cricket, and have worked across many development projects, pilots and consultancy projects for UK and International Networks and Production Companies.
I have experience in a range of positions, and am flexible as I have such a wide range of skills, built up over many credits. I can work as Head of Production, Consultant, Senior Production Exec, Line Producer, Fixer, Location Management, Production Manager, and Producer.
I pride myself on my creative approach to my work and love working closely with all members of production and crews planning and managing series. I have the ability to negotiate, schedule, budget, plan and develop new commissions, and have cut my teeth doing this working closely with EP's and Producers. I am proud of being part of the small team that secured the return of Masterchef (with John Silver and Karen Ross), and enjoyed my time building the success of Endemol and Initial with Laurence Jones, Tim Hincks, and at Absolutely Productions with Phil Edgar Jones and Tim Sealey, and being Head of Production at Outline Productions with Laura Mansfield and Helen Veale.
In summary, I work best when under pressure, am constantly busy, am imaginative when problem solving (which is why i work well in events and Live TV) have a lot of contacts across the board, am old and wise now, so a thick skin comes with the territory, and just love people and telly. I strive for perfection and the management of my team, and the personnel I work with is of paramount importance at all times.
To be honest about my flaws, I'd say I'm just too positive, which means that I have to find a solution pretty quickly, otherwise I'll be feeling frustrated! Read Less
