About me: An experienced Production Manager with the skills and abilities to make a positive difference. Trained as a floor manager and 1st Assistant Director with a spell at location producing thrown in for good measure. I have managed both small and large productions delivering high quality broadcast material while observing budget and schedule restraints. My credits include, entertainment, fixed rig, quiz, factual, reality, talent led, studio, location, live and recorded productions.
My strengths lie in people management, collaboration and negotiation with the ability to develop and motivate the production team. I have the ability to keep the project on the critical path, maintaining the company objectives while always aiming to deliver a "win win" scenario for all concerned.
Past productions have benefited from my reliability, focus and passion with a dry sense of humor and respect for colleague views while achieving the required end result.
When not working on the current production I like to keep up to date with current affairs, the entertainment Industry through theatre, film and television and the world of rugby union, having been a former Sevenoaks player, a current Northampton Saints fan and past witness to England winning the 2003 world cup while I was based in Sydney Australia.
Other abilities include quick-thinking and operating under considerable pressure while appreciating the bigger picture , being focused and effective.
