I have 14 years experience in broadcasting in South Africa, in all genres including actuality, documentaries and live programming. In the past few years I have facilitated for US network shows and the BBC, as well as independent producers from around the world. My offices are in Johannesburg, not only the economic hub of southern Africa, but also the base for film and television industry suppliers.

Dealing with an owner-run business ensures that clients have personal attention on every project. I have a streamlined office with computer, fax, e-mail and internet, so the low overheads benefit my clients in the form of huge savings.
