Freelance - My Drone Pro and My Safety Pro

CAA approved drone operator for film, television, outside broadcasting, news gathering and events. 

Experienced Production Safety Advisor for film, television, outside broadcasting, news gathering and events.

7 years experience in television production as a production safety advisor. News gathering (inc hostile environments), studio productions, set building, location shoots, outside broadcast events from Premier League football and Formula 1 to Darts and Fish'O'Mania. I also gained some production management experience while working in this role.

Qualified Electrical Engineer with particular specilism in requirements for electricity in the television, film, outside broadcasting and events (BS7909 - Temporary Electical Intallations)

Sky Sports News NCTJ Diploma in Journalism (with Merits) in conjunction with University of Brighton.

Earlier in 2018 I was the Safety Manager on a Netflix film being produced by Brad Pitt and Dede Gardner (PlanB Producions). Written and Directed by David Michod (War Machine, Animal), starring Timothee Chalamet (Call Me By Your Name, Lady Bird) and Joel Edgerton (The Great Gatsby, Black Mass). The King was shot in the UK and Hungary and had a budget around $70m.

I worked really closely with Mr Michod and his 1st AD Steve Andrews (The English Patient, Cold Mountain) and learned a great deal about directing and filmmaking in general.

I also write my own scripts and recently began to shoot my own short films and music videos. This content will be available on my YouTube channel early in 2019.
