Through the usual mix of school drama and then at the City of Westminster College, I started work with a local Sound company In Colchester.

After two years with them I moved to a local production company and worked with them for 6 years, learning all about the corporate production world, moving my way up the company, from a YTS scheme trainee, through all of the different production disciplines to Senior production Manager.

I left the production company in September 2001 to become freelance and soon found out that this was the life for me.

I love the challenge of a new project, fixing it and then moving on to the next one.

I also love working in a number of different disciplines and I find my knowledge of all of the production disciplines very helpful in being a Production Manager as I have a deep understanding of where everyone is coming from when there is a problem.

75% of my year is working as a Production Manager but different clients use me for different skills. Below is a list of some of the other ways that I can fit in with your team.
