Development Producer 

Producer/Director

I work primarily as a Development Producer and Producer, on both broadcast and branded content.

I started in the industry as a news camera op, then went up the conventional career ladder from researcher to SP, before focussing in on development, which I love because it offers total creative freedom.  

Working as a Development Producer I’m used to spotting and generating ideas, nurturing relationships, pitching, helping budget and of course writing decks and producing sizzles. I’ve created concepts across every genre in non-scripted and I’m happy doing broadcast, branded or AFP work.

I still like to keep my hand in producing though – I’m a specialist in ‘build shows’, stunts and popular science and engineering. I’m definitely able to save you time, money and potential headaches if brought in early.

Any concept which requires you to make your subject rather than follow it presents a serious challenge to schedules and budgets, so good advice is vital.  

As a PD I’ve worked on a wide range of programming, from a two-man self-shooting crew in Arctic Alaska, to big multi camera set ups like Scrapheap Challenge where I managed a crew of 45.  I’m experienced at using drones, helicopters and ‘toys’ like Russian Arm tracking vehicles.

In my spare time I’m an avid nonfiction reader, particularly interested in pretty much everything, from the Battle Of Britain to the blockchain.

Whether it’s a branded piece for Royal Enfield, an ob doc for C4 or new survival format for Discovery, I’d love to hear from you. I keep my availability updated on The Talent Manager.
