I left the BBC after 34 years and am now putting all those broadcast & productiopn skills I've honed to good use as a freelancer. I am open to work hands-on or mentoring in TV & Radio Presentation/Reporting/Production as well as Voiceover work, Event Hosting and Webcast Production. I have my own production studio set-up at home.
Here's what I've been up to...
