Biography

Originally from Scotland, I moved to London in 2000 to pursue a career in TV production. I've been a Runner, Co-ordinator, Transmission Controller, Broadcast Engineer, MCR Operator, Vision Mixer (Switcher) and Studio Director.

I primarily work freelance as a Studio Director and Vision Mixer, doing live TV shows (news, sports, reality TV, politics, corporate work, shopping TV, music, outside broadcasts).

I've always been interested in radio and communications, and finally got round to getting a callsign in Feb 2016 so I could get access to bits of software that required a callsign!

Planning on upgrading to Intermediate UK Licence, and then in the future up to Full Licence.
