About Me

 

I was born and raised in the UK (becoming an American Citizen in 2013) and started my career right out of school with a small live television facilities company in 1992 called TV2 (famous for it's pioneering work with Formula One Racing Coverage). TV2 was later acquired by WESCAM where I continued to gain valuable experience with a wide variety of RF transmission systems, as well as gyro-stabilized camera equipment.

In 1998 I decided to start my own business based in London, providing equipment and services to the TV industry in the UK and for almost a decade worked on countless shows with all the major UK Broadcasters (including BBC, ITV, C4, Sky etc). This also led to work in more than 40 countries around the World on live TV coverage of many sports, news and entertainment shows.

In 2003 I was asked by Warner Bros. to design and build a digital video transmission system which would be used during the filming of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. I continued working in UK Film and TV until 2007, when I relocated to Los Angeles. Still travelling the World extensively to work, I met and married my wife in LA in 2008 and switched to working exclusively on movies in Hollywood such as Spiderman, The Avengers, Inception and Mission Impossible.

By 2014, now with my wife and two children, we made a move towards the east coast of the USA and at the same time, I began working mainly in Live Television once again. Initially as a freelance engineer but quickly as a full time Truck EIC (Engineer in Charge) for 3G Wireless. With 3G I have worked on many major projects from Cycle Racing (Tours of Utah, California, Colorado etc) to Motorsports (IMSA, GRC etc) and Triathlons & Marathons (including Boston) as well as events like The SuperBowl, Presidential Elections and New Years Eve Shows in Times Square.
