After Qualifying in “92”as an Architectural Technician i left the British building industry and went on world travel. This somehow ended up taking me to Cannes, France during the famous Cannes Film Festival. For the next 12 years plus i worked as a Production / Project Coordinator for a British communication company. I was hired to employ capable individuals working to extreme deadlines. Consistently putting together successful teams of reprobates to get the job done for the exhibition and festival industry. As hard and tiring the industry is, it brings together great team players and is an enjoyment to be part off.
Planning and controlling the production processes to ensure smooth operations and maintain an efficient production process with a work force that can readily adapt to new equipment and schedules. Responsible for realizing the visions of the design team knowledge of all production disciplines including a understanding of the interaction of these disciplines during the production process.
Expected to meet strict deadlines with resource restraints. Solve or meet the requirements and needs of the business, depending on the communication needs of the project. Planning, organizing and managing resources to bring about the successful completion of specific project goals and objectives, while honouring the project constraints.
