The cross platform opportunities and in-house production we can now offer clients looking to leverage their brands within the Action Sports and lifestyle sector will be second to none. On a personal level being able to work so closely with some of the most passionate, creative and respected individuals within our industry is an exciting prospect that will collectively allow us to achieve and surpass our previous output."

He has been integral to the success of many high profile events, video projects and campaigns within the action sports world and beyond. With a career history spanning TV Presenter/Director/Producer roles and spells as a Photographer, he is well placed to leverage the skill set of the most creative people in the market to instigate and develop ground breaking and innovative campaigns for both new and existing clients alike."
