My expertise has opened up many exciting opportunities and led me to work for some very high profile companies.


People are surprised at the breadth of my digital design knowledge and often say "you can't be good at everything". My reply is, I've had a lifetime to learn and make myself as good as I can! I have an inquisitive mind and continually want to know how things work and I thrive on challenges.


As the art director for Bug Club I wanted to bring to life the primary school Bug Club brand, so I storyboarded and produced engaging animations and videos by using Motion 5, Adobe Premiere and Adobe Media Encoder. These have received a really positive response from teachers which has undoubtedly proved these initiatives to be invaluable marketing tools.


During my time working for Jaguar Land Rover, I was appointed to film, direct and produce videos for use in internal communications to staff across the organisation. Here's a couple of examples, one of which is the production line launch of the Jaguar F-TYPE. This was an incredible and hugely humbling experience which I'll never forget.



My filming of the Jaguar F-TYPE production line launch at the Castle Bromwich Plant in Birmingham in March 2013.

I filmed this video for the Jaguar Land Rover Virtual Reality Hub, based at their Technology Headquarters in Gaydon, Warwickshire.
