I’m an award-winning creative audio producer – specialising in all aspects of station promotion and imaging from creative script writing to full-blown production pieces.

20 Years in 2 Minutes

I currently work as Group Production Director at Celador Radio, working on production for Sam FM, Fire Radio, and across The Breeze network. 

I’m also Imaging Director for the Avalanche Classic Rock library for Benztown Branding.

I’ve previously worked as Head of Station Sound for Capital 95.8 London, and Head of Production for the original Capital FM Network.

From 2010 to 2012, I worked at BBC Creative marketing, creating radio promos for BBC TV shows – from Top Gear to Being Human, alongside pan-industry campaigns for Digital Radio.

From 2009-2010, I worked at Pure Tonic Media (now Reelworld Europe) – creating imaging and promotional campaigns for stations as diverse as Z100 and KIISFM Los Angeles and BBC Radio 1 and BBC Radio 3.

From 2005-2008, I was  Head of Station Sound at Capital 95.8 in London, managing all imaging and production on the UK’s biggest Hit Music station.  And before that, ran the Capital FM Network production department – working across stations such as 96.4 BRMB, Power FM and Beat 106.

Over the past 26 years, I’ve gained loads of experience of creative script writing – client or station focused. Clients have included British Airways, Kellogg’s, BMI, Rimmel London and Virgin Holidays.

I’m also a highly versatile studio manager – from multi-source Outside broadcasts to technical operation on live speech based shows. From Live 8 coverage and The Egg Big Money Experiment on the UK Commercial Radio network to BBC Local Radio breakfast shows.
