Presently I am working with Warner Bros International as a Consultant overseeing the international delivery and production roll out of NBC's new hit LE show 'Ellens Game of Games' globally. I have worked on a variety of broadcast programmes ranging from Reality, Fact Ent, LE, Sport, Studio and Live Events, I am very suited to setting up large primetime LE shows, that are trying to reinvent the wheel. Recently I worked with Kim Ross, Deborah Sargeant, Sarah Edwards (Sony), Karl Warner (Electric Ray), Gigi Eligoloff, Ruth Wrigley, Clare Barton & Ant Hurford Jones on Bring the Noise & The Paul O Grady Show. I launched and secured the series of Masterchef for the BBC with John Silver and Karen Ross at SHINE. In the past I was one of the formidable team on Big Brother, Celeb BB, Tiny Tearaways, Fame Academy, The Bafta Film Awards, The Lottery Show, The Commonweath Games, and The Paralympics for the BBC.
I have experience in a range of positions, and am flexible as I have such a wide range of skills, built up over many credits. I can work as Head of Production, Production Exec, Line Producer, Fixer, Location Management, and Production Manager, and Producer.
I pride myself on my creative approach to my work and love working closely with all members of production and crews planning and managing series. I have the ability to negotiate, schedule, budget, plan and develop new commissions, and have cut my teeth doing this working closely with EP's and Producers. I am proud of being part of the small team that secured the return of Masterchef (with John Silver and Karen Ross), and enjoyed my time building the success of Endemol and Initial with Laurence Jones, Tim Hincks, and at Absolutely Productions with Phil Edgar Jones and Tim Sealey, and being Head of Production at Outline Productions with Laura Mansfield and Helen Veale.
In summary, I work best when under pressure, am constantly busy, am imaginative when problem solving (which is why i work well in events and Live TV) have a lot of contacts across the board, am old and wise now, so a thick skin comes with the territory, and just love people and telly. I strive for perfection and the management of my team, and the personnel I work with is of paramount importance at all times.
To be honest about my flaws, I'd say I'm just too positive, which means that I have to find a solution pretty quickly, otherwise I'll be feeling frustrated! Read Less
