I am a Singapore-based producer-director who has worked with award-winning UK factual production companies like Pioneer Productions, Arrow Media, Lion Television and Darlow Smithson Productions delivering to Channel 4 (UK), PBS (USA), Discovery, National Geographic, Science Channel, Smithsonian Channel, History Channels etc.; in genres as diverse as Archaeology, Architecture, History, Science, Engineering, Technology, Culture, Politics, Nutrition and Travel.

Along with my Director of Photography partner, Brian McDairmant, I run a production services and fixing company - TWO CHIEFS (www.twochiefs.com) - centrally-located in the heart of Asia, Singapore. We are available-for-hire for shoots as far north as Japan and China; to the Indian subcontinent (including Sri Lanka); and to the wider Pacific area, including Australia and New Zealand.

Two Chiefs have serviced UK shoots remotely for over a decade.

Previously in acquisitions and commissioning management with Discovery Networks and National Geographic Channel, I also have an insider's understanding of the needs of non-fiction or documentary broadcasters.

Our corporate clients have included HSBC, UBS, Exxon Mobil, Unilever, SITA, Virgin, GlaxoSmithKline, Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and Philips.

I have researched and interviewed politicians & policy makers; captains-of-industry; academics: social theorists & historians; billionaires, scientists & engineers; refugees, kick-boxers, fishermen & beauty queens.

I bring a rare combination of a UK sensibility to factual production, with a local's understanding of the region. Navigating the sensitivities of shooting in Asia's very different cultures is my strength. Read Less
