I have over 30 years of professional radio experience on-air across music, talk, sports, and news formats, and continue to work as a media trainer and consultant. I also have experience from working with a major theater touring production company in business and operations management. Three years ago I set up an independent podcast production company, and became a podcast creator and producer of branded business podcasts. During this period I became the writer, director, and executive Producer of a Fiction Audio Drama Podcast called 'The Last Stand Down' - 8 Episodes. This was an adaptation of a novel written by Philip J Bradbury. This podcast was launched in January 2021 on all platforms and in June 2021 broadcast on London's Podcast Radio network on DAB+ as an audio drama feature. I have also developed and produced two Short Story podcasts involving local and emerging authors. With a passion for screenwriting and after several re-writes and notes, a feature of mine with a working title of 'Millions in Manila', a collaboration with a Swedish Creator, is a story inspired by true events. I have several other projects in various stages of development with one being a new TV Crime Investigation procedural pilot.
