I've 4 professional skillsets to make your project sing...
In front of camera
Five times winner of
Royal Television Society
(NE & the Border)
"An engaging and thorough presenter, who showcased a variety of presenting styles; a rich seam of research, and an approachable, trustworthy style. He shows he can be sharp and confrontational in interviews when faced with difficult subject matter, but also laid-back and entertaining."
I fronted BBC One's regional current affairs TV show "Inside Out" for its entire 18 year run and established a public profile as a trusted investigator and viewer's friend.
As well as door-stepping the bad guys, I am able to create a rapport with nervous contributors to enable them to tell their stories. But don't take my word for it...
Behind the camera
As a senior producer with the BBC for many years I have made many films & documentaries for network and regional broadcast.
My work covers many genres including investigations, history, culture, consumer affairs, real life stories and has appeared on BBC One, Two, Four & BBC News Channel.
I often research, script, self-shoot and direct other presenters in these films and would be happy to provide any one or all of these skills to make your project stand out.
Variety is the joy of the job!
VoiceOver & Narration
Behind the mic
If you don't need a face, how about a voice?
With the profile and kudos of being the recognisable voice of serious Current Affairs on North East Television, I am uniquely placed to bring gravitas and credibility to your project.
Having presented programmes and narrated documentaries & short films in a range of styles and genres, I have the experience to get the tone just right to suit your needs.
As well as the hard tone of the newshound I can bring the easy familiarity of a friend by your side.
Whatever you might need... Just ask.
Event Producer & Host
I have a wide experience of hosting events such as high-brow academic discussions, probing on-stage intervewing and the lighter touch of celebratory awards ceremonies.
Audiences and venues, large and small - concert hall, theatre stage to town or school hall.
One memorable event was chairing a heated debate about the future of sex-robots! No really!
I am currently producing & exec'ing live stream shows for clients finding new and exciting ways to connect during Covid-19
I put the work in so, whatever the brief, I'm sure I can help make it an occasion to remember.
