Professional info


I've been described as a ‘Cross Functional Producer’.  While I suspect that this thoroughly modern handle would apply to myself, I’ve always been a little old-fashioned and so prefer ‘versatile’.


I can produce, write, production manage, direct, assistant direct, schedule, budget, develop, location manage/scout and hand-hold with the best of ‘em.


I’ve worked across a variety of roles in my professional career, from producing fact based PSAs on workplace mental health to crafting jokes for late-night talk-show monologues and production managing AR productions.


I possess a passion for developing talent, encouraging teamwork and fostering positive, happy work environments – after all filmmaking is a collaborative art and a good team is a team that plays for each other.


Outside of work, I have captained football teams my skill level shouldn’t allow me to play in and host a mean trivia night.
