Managing Director, Reedsmore
Reedsmore provides creative services covering video production, graphic design, web design and photography.
As part of my work for Reedsmore, I regularly freelance as a Technical Director for BBC Sport.
I also produce and present the new-music podcast The Real Rob Taylor.
Returning to CNBC as a studio director in a freelance capacity, I also took shifts in the newsroom as an associate producer.
CNBC kept me busy for around 70% of the time, enabling me to work on expanding my skillset as a freelance photographer specialising in headshots, event coverage and promotional shoots.
After three successful years as a full-time studio director I was ready for a fresh challenge. Faced with low liquidity in the London TV job market, I took a year out to travel in South East Asia and Australia before returning to the UK via Hong Kong, Macau, China, Switzerland and Sweden.
Studio Director, CNBC
CNBC provided an ideal environment for me to rapidly broaden my skill set. Starting as a transmission controller, I soon began working alternate fortnights in the CNBC gallery as a technical operator before moving away from transmission and into the gallery full-time.In 2000, less than three years after embarking upon my TV career, I achieved my medium-term goal of becoming CNBC’s youngest studio director.
