I have worked in the world of broadcast technology since I joined the BBC as a systems integrator. It was there that I received a thorough background in audio and video engineering. I worked on many projects, predominately studios for teleproduction, but with some forays into the world of video effects.

After ten years with the broadcaster I left to join the broadcast equipment manufacturing industry, initially with Abekas-Cox. I soon migrated from engineering to product marketing. I have also worked at Vistek and Pro-Bel in product marketing roles for hardware and software products. Pro-Bel pioneered media asset management for television channel playout as the systems evolved from using videotape to a file-based environment.

My next move was to a content hosting ASP where I became further involved in digital asset management and was introduced to streaming media.

In 2003, with my business partner Colin Birch, we set up Informed Sauce. We have recently launched a new tablet magazine about the media technology business.


From 2005 to 2013 I edited the world edition of Broadcast Engineering magazine.

I have presented papers on interactive television and digital asset management at many conferences including NAB and IBC. I'm a member of the AES, SMPTE, and the RTS and a licentiate of the Royal Photographic Society.
