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 Senior Editor and co-owner 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 10 British 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 commercial production.

In 2020, I evolved once again, to continue producing and delivering advertising and video content for clients 100% remotely.

I pursue swimming, running, gymnastics rings, and strength training. I’m a competent snowboarder and hiker. I enjoy watching ice hockey. I love Star Trek and Marvel. I spend some of my downtime gaming, mostly playing Call of Duty Modern Warfare, and Black Ops Cold War. Sometimes I stream on Twitch. I like red wine. I can speak a very small amount of Russian. I love to travel. If I’ve got a rucksack on my back and a flight to catch I’ll be smiling.
