TV Commercial Producer | Video Editor | Author

I am a versatile and deeply experienced TV Commercial Producer, Video Content Producer, Editor, Graphic Designer, and Author. With more than twenty years of experience in the television advertising and video production industry, I produce effective and good-looking work, often without the luxury of distant deadlines or generous budgets. I’m in the business of making stuff work! As Production Director of the UK television advertising agency JMS Group, I have direct involvement in the creation of more than 200 television commercials and video marketing projects every year. I’m on a mission to accelerate JMS Group to become one of the top TV commercial production companies.

My debut video production book Managing a Video Production Company is available from Focal Press. This no-nonsense textbook guides Film and Media Studies students through the steps of starting a production company and growing a successful and creative business.

Career Backstory

I developed a fascination with the technical magic of TV production during the late 1980s, watching the cult Children’s ITV show Knightmare. In 2000 I joined Norwich production company JMS Group as a Junior Video Editor, cutting long-form corporate videos for conference presentations. As the business repositioned itself as a creator of Direct Response TV advertising, I established a post-production infrastructure to meet the demands of high-volume TV commercial production. I am now co-owner and Production Director of JMS Group.

I pursue swimming, running, gymnastics rings, strength training, and mountain bikes. I’m a competent snowboarder and hiker, and I’m steadily progressing with skateboarding. I love Star Trek and Marvel. I spend some of my downtime gaming, mostly playing Call of Duty Modern Warfare II, and Black Ops Cold War. Sometimes I stream on Twitch. I love to travel. If I’ve got a rucksack on my back and a flight to catch I’ll be smiling.
