I offer over 30 years experience in the creation of tools and systems for creative industries,mainly in TV, Theatre, Film,Telco, Special Effects.A technologist with vision, and the ability to connect that to people, in a business context.
I have now joined Adrian Scott at The Bakewell House Consultancy, offering the Broadcast sector deep marketing insight and technical knowledge to inform market entry, product strategy. I am providing technical due diligence in several large acquisitions, and with Adrian helping US based companies get connected to the broadcast sector in EMEA.
I have gained considerable first hand experience as a carer for my wife (MS, wheelchair user).
I have run customer facing service organisations (equipment hire) internationally.
I have taught at a major University (Theatre,Film and TV)
I was CTO at Aardman Animations over 10 years, establishing many of the engineering systems, IT systems, and methodology behind Wallace and Gromit.
I spent two years establishing a digital media research unit, connecting academia with (media) industries, which lead to the last 8 years with Hewlett-Packard in HPLabs, developing large scale teams and systems for management and commercialisation of digital assets. I hold several patents. My team is still intact, in place and developing today some of HP's major activities in digital media services.
After moving into HP consulting, joining a strategic team in Telco I finally left HP at the end of 2006, and am looking for the working relationship that can exploit my wide experience, energy, and ability to connect quickly.
In furtherance of this, I have established Skirrid Consulting, and hold non-exec. positions in two software companies (one in Czech Republic), including a strategic advisor at board level.
My goal is to share my innovative and creative engineering skills, and to act as a catalyst to industries, not restricted to broadcast industries.
