As director of content development team at luminous I’ve assessed proposals and developed a slate of projects ready for market including, pilots for animation series, television series, comedy, reality TV and feature films. As the manager & producer of two different independent production facilities in Sydney over the last ten years I have developed a broad skill base including project management, client negotiation and team building. My strengths lie in my ability to see an entertainment opportunity and take a project from conception through to completion as a producer or step in with a hands-on role when needed. I’m a professional content producer with expertise in development of high-level entertainment concepts and their execution across a 15 year career. I’ve successfully conceived, created and pitched a range of television and film concepts to local and international enablers; from other production companies through to international finance brokers. I have produced feature films, but also completed projects as a solo content producer.
