FREELANCE

After travelling, I returned to my formerly full-time role at CNBC as a studio director / vision mixer.

I also took shifts in the CNBC newsroom as an associate producer, where I researched stories, wrote scripts, pre-interviewed guests, briefed presenters, editing video and more. Combined with my gallery experience, this gave me with an unparalleled overview of the news
production process.

Outside my work at CNBC, I also freelanced as a stills photographer, specialising in headshots and
corporate events.

YEAR OUT

Following three successful years as a full-time studio director, I took a year out to travel through South East Asia before moving on to Australia and heading home via China, Switzerland and Sweden.

CNBC
Studio Director

CNBC provided an ideal environment for me to quickly expand my skillset at an early stage in my career. I began in transmission and soon after moved into the gallery as a technical operator.

In 2000 I became CNBC’s youngest studio director. More than 95% of the output I worked on was live and saw me simultaneously directing presenters and gallery while vision mixing on a BTS DD35-3 and simultaneously operating six studio cameras via Radamec. There would typically be two directors on
shift, alternating hourly between directing live output and acting as assistant director and floor
manager.

FAC 51 THE HACIENDA
Sound Engineer

As the in-house sound engineer at Manchester’s legendary music venue the Hacienda, I was to ultimately take my place in Manchester music history as the person to switch off the sound systems for the final time ever in the early hours of June 29th 1997.
