An Independent Digital Media Producer Specialising In Web Video & Marketing For Business. Based in Derby, but covering Nottingham and Leicester.
In between client projects I make films, art projects and fun stuff under the banner of, Irrelevant Digital Media, where I enjoy working alongside local artists and filmmakers. I ran the Video Production Society at the University of Derby which opened the door to local opportunities and started me on the path to providing video solutions for local businesses. It also helped me develop strong leadership skills and a passion for collaboration. I’ve led video productions ranging from artist promos and live performance recording to events coverage, documentary and workshops.
Other creative distractions include several blogs, creative photography, graphic design and web design. For details of current or upcoming projects I’m involved with head over to the Blog
