Freelance & Service Producer | Production Manager

Experience

With 30+ years in feature films, tv series, episodic drama, stills and commercial production I bring a wealth of experience, knowledge, leadership, diplomacy & financial responsibility required in the modern production.

Starting right at the bottom and learning through location & production departments I have worked extensively as production manager, producer and service producer in New Zealand, Australia, Asia & Europe.

Attempting to live a balanced lifestyle dream in stunningly beautiful Central Otago, but I am a happy work commuter. Another passion is with www.akitu.co.nz - my brother Andrews vineyard & wine venture at Mt Barker, Wanaka .... check out our successive vintage internationally award winning pinot noir.
