Biography

I am the media production manager for the School of Creative Technologies’ in-house production company.  Before joining the university I was a freelance film producer specialising in commercial feature films.

During my 5 years in the film industry, I produced over 20 feature films and one TV series.  I was fortunate enough to work with extremely talented crew and many prolific actors including Mark Hamill, Jean Claude Van Damme, Jason Flemyng, Dexter Fletcher, Danny Dyer and Alan Ford. My films secured international distribution with Lionsgate, Metrodome and Optimum Releasing.

Research

My research interests are about sustainable practices within the film and television industries.  I am working on a collaboration with BAFTA to analyse how scalable their current albert+ certification process is for smaller, independent production companies.
