Over 25 years experience in the Broadcast Industry, providing technical services and solutions to, broadcasters, technical facilities, OBs, post production houses, production companies, agencies & educational facilities.

I love to make things work.

Well organized with ability to multi-task and prioritise.

Strong troubleshooting skills.

Excellent written and verbal communication skills.

Attention to detail and proven record of delivering quality results.

Highly driven and motivated within dynamically changing environments.

I have spent the majority of 2020 and early 2021 designing and installing cloud and hybrid remote edit and production systems, on multiple platforms. Then headed off to Tokyo for the delayed Tokyo2020 Olympics, where I'm Supervising in the Technical Operations Centre (TOC). 

As a freelancer I'm agile and can often make myself available for interesting projects, on an ad-hoc or contract basis, at short notice.

Please get in touch if need help with 'ANYTHING TV and TECHNICAL'.
