An accomplished Creative Director, producer and storytelling powerhouse with exceptional ability to communicate through video in intelligent and appealing ways. A creative with strategic, technical, social & project management skills and the Content Marketing chops to make any campaign sing. For many years I was a broadcast television, commercials and documentary director in the UK and Ireland and I've blended those skills with online video, analytics, social media, advertising and KPIs as well finding, earning and growing an audience on myriad platforms. I am a hugely creative, multidisciplinary & dynamic generator of ideas with the hands-on production talent to execute right through to delivery and distribution. I excel at helping brands humanize their story using filmmaking, storytelling and social techniques in a cinematic way; from viral videos to integrated content marketing campaigns using the latest technologies, distribution platforms and audience-first principles. I bring old-school skills to a very new party - cinematics, story, pacing, editing, visual storytelling and much much more, married with the application of metrics, UX & web design, YouTube optimization, branding, inbound marketing strategy and community engagement. I have instinct & style - ideas are my thing & I live to make stuff

    skills

    Since 1996 I've worked in practically every role, from runner to director; focus puller to producer and now Creative Director.  I've gained invaluable insight into what each crew, each project needs and it has made me an incredible flexible and efficient filmmaker and creative manager 

    Concepts

    From the most intimate & compelling human story to the most out-there viral stunt, it all starts with the spark of an idea.  From there, the most critical part is deciding the tone and style that serve the story best.  This is where I excel. I can work in any genre or style. I am a polymath of video genres.  Coupled with my strong writing skills I can coax an idea from a spark to an inferno

    Production

    I've produced hundreds of hours of content and overseen tens of millions of dollars worth of budgets.  I've planned, organized and executed shoots in over 37 countries including some of the hardest to reach and harshest places on Earth.   I have contacts and resources in every corner of the globe.

     Creative Direction

    Working on projects with teams large or small, designing and implementing content marketing and amplification strategies and practices through multiple channels - I've done it all
