Information to confirm my professional credibility

I’m a creative Producer with 15 years experience in mixed media content production, studio management and client service. I’ve worked with boutique agencies, production studios, worldwide agency groups and global brands in Australia and the UK.
I have a passion for all forms of visual craft and love working in different disciplines, these include: motion, stills, print, editing, animation, vfx, design and sound.
As a studio lead, I can manage teams and projects providing guidance and structure. But I can make the transition to a Director/Producer on individual projects which require a specific, creative touch.
Balance is key in my role. I ensure that all invested parties needs are met. From the client, to a photographer or an animator. Its my hands on experience in production practices that enables perfect harmony for project success, sustainability and profit.
At home I love to draw and paint stuff, interview directors on my blog 'Music Video Theory' and embarrass my baby daughter on Instagram.
