Now in my 10th year of working in the broadcast industry, I have a versatile set of skills based on a core capability in broadcast and IT technologies. My experience includes providing support for hundreds of channels that use traditional playout, onpass and OTT methods as well as the associated distribution and monitoring for these services.

I have also been involved in projects to develop infrastructure for QA testing, the design, build, and configuration of servers to meet required specifications, as well as fitting out new operational facilities. I’m particularly focused on Cloud, OTT, and Playout technologies but I also maintain and develop my expertise in data networks and scripting/programming.

Most recently I have worked as part of the team that successfully migrated Babcock Media Services’ OTT MCR over to Encompass’ new London Media Centre in Chiswick. I’ve also recently provided engineering services for a number of facilities supporting Cloud, Playout, Automation, MAM, Transcoding, Networking, and Archive technologies.
