I am a TV Producer who has successfully produced high TV commercials for major international clients including MTN, Celtel (Zain), Globacom, Subaru and Bidvest Bank.

Having shot across the length and breadth of the African continent from Malindi to Marrakech, Lagos to Lamu and a host of places in between I am well acquainted with local shooting conditions, crew, locations and facilities available in the various countries. After 20 years working for both production houses and advertising agencies I have developed a clear and well-respected reputation for delivering top end commercials according to a firm, results-driven modus operandi catering to the requests of top notch directors and challenging briefs.

My enthusiasm, eye for detail and knack of making the impossible possible equip me well to guide any production through the planned challenges and inevitable surprises that are singular to shooting in Africa.

Specialities include:

  • Consulting on shooting conditions in Africa
  • Sourcing top-end crew and facilities across the African continent
  • Production Supervision
  • Scheduling
  • Budgeting
  • Locations
  • Casting
  • Equipment
  • Carnets
  • Customs & Immigration
