About me.

I've been working in production and broadcast since I was at Highschool. It all started making parodies of shows I loved online with friends back when streaming at 360p was thought to be high quality. Fast forward 10 years and I have now streamed Olympic torch relays, Council meetings, esports tournaments and a whole load more. I currently work at Digital Tree Media, which I founded in 2014, as the Director of Production. I have the fortune of working on fantastic projects involving the latest technologies not just in broadcast but in graphics, networking, lighting, sound, and more!

Who I am.

I'm a technical director at heart. I love pressing buttons and sometimes I do it in the right order!

My philosophy.

To me the most important parts of a project are what the viewer/user sees and whether we have met the goals.

How I work

I love working on innovative projects, the kind that people don't think will work.

My skills and experience.

What I do.

Broadcast Design

I've designed a lot of onscreen content. From simple lower third graphics, tickers, graphs, to more complex explainer and dynamic data driven graphics.

System Design & Concept

Deciding what tools to use to achive a goal is a wonderful process. In the modern world there's so much choice from IP based audio and video to more traditional approaches. I love walking clients through the pros and cons.

System Integration

Making sure all the chosen systems work together coherently is as important as choosing the right systems. I have a wealth of exepereience in combing technologies and writing software to do so!

Mobile Apps

I've created custom interfaces for studio control, end user applications for voting and everything in between. I work using web technologies allowing rapid development and bringing cross platform compatability by default.

Camera Operation

While I don't get to jump behind a camera as much as I used to anymore having an appreciation for the ergonomics and requirements of a camera operator helps me in creating a holistic workflow that works for all members of the crew.

Interactive Experiences

It doesn't matter if it's just a simple Twitter wall, chat box or fully interactive Twitch Extension, I've had the pleasure of working on great projets for wonderful clients to involve their audience in the broadcast.
