Simon, Producer

I’ve been a storyteller running media production companies since 2007. I love being part of something bigger. I’m an excellent manager of creative people, I thrill at ideation, my scheduling and budgeting is on point, and my own concept development and execution skills in video, copy and now virtual reality production are high-level.

I’m seeking teams and organisations who can make use of my uniquely modern, digital skillset to enhance their own offering. Running businesses gives me an appreciation across departments. That means I work more effectively in my specific role, to support the team, because I understand how I affect us as a whole. My futurism bent has made me able to see trends and industry directions before they take hold, which means I help a company adapt to and take advantage of the future. Bringing me on board will bring energy, entrepreneurial spirit and creative punch. I help the right organisations explode towards their goals and mission.

I’m awesome with organisation, logistics, and communication. My organisation means scores of freelancers and crew-members are comfortable and confident when we’re in production. My experience running multiple media businesses means my clients love the process and the people and I’m always finding new opportunities for them and us.
