PRODUCER with history, academic background, contacts, and passion for engineering, science, tech production.

DEVELOPMENT PRODUCER with 3+ years experience across a broad specialist factual / fact-ent development slate at North One – generating ideas, writing & formatting highly engaging treatments, scripting/directing/shooting/editing sizzles, working with new and emerging talent on taster tapes, and pitching proposals to the Head of Development, MD and broadcasters.

History of securing access to blue-chip corporations for features e.g. Honda, PlayStation, IBM, Northrop Grumman etc.

Devise, produce, script and project manage complex unusual set-pieces & builds around the world – E.g. sending minicams to the edge of space, building amphibious taxicabs, engineering a VR gaming simulator, converting a 56 ton crane to be controlled by brainwaves, taking a bomb disposal robot shopping, building the world’s largest game of Tetris, or engineering a robotic version of Stephen Fry…enjoy the challenge of locating and convincing authorities, locations, suppliers, engineers, and specialists to deliver global features and set-pieces on television timescales and budgets.

Self-Edit taster tapes to a high standard on Final Cut Pro X. Basic shooting on 5D / C300 etc.

Edinburgh International Television Festival ‘One to Watch’.
