I've managed a keen work history, firstly in design and websites, however mostly in television. The latter is the reason for this page on my production work history. Since training at Avalon Studios in 2003 I have worked on a variety of projects; small to large; local, regional, national; full productions to short films and music videos; live and pre-recorded; large budget or basically made for nothing.

My skills in this area are widely varied, mostly because my training was like this and the majority of roles I've accomplished have always required me to be able to be multi skilled and learn fast. I easily believe this helps any and all employment chances I have in the workforce. Some of my current skills and experience are:

- Extensive Camera Operation and Lighting
- Field Direction
- Live and Recorded Outside Broadcast Roles
- Studio Floor Operation, incl. setup, camera work, floor management, operation, etc.
- Extensive Live Control Room Production Work
- Extensive Video Tape and Server Operations
- Varied Editing history with Adobe Premiere and AVID
- Graphics and Design
- Archive material handling including film and tape formats
- Sound Desk and Vision Switching Operation (Basic)
- Television Commercial production
- Research and
- Kitroom Equipment Preperation
- Runner and Driving roles
- General Production and Production Assistant duties
