The film industry is my major specialism, interest and field of expertise, with over 25 years of experience in sector development all around the world. I work at the intersection of government and the industry, specifically advising governments and their agencies on the strategies, policies, programmes and activations available to drive economic growth from film and tv production.
I am the former Executive Director of the Association of Film Commissioners International (Los Angeles), the former Executive Director of the Colorado Film Commission (Denver), and the former acting Executive Director of the Cape Film Commission and the Cape Town Film Permit Office and the former Chief Operating Officer of Sithengi, the Southern African International Film and Television Market (Cape Town).
I am a co-founder of the African Film Commissions Network. I have drafted Film Incentive Programmes, City Film Policies, Film Friendliness Programmes, and Film Permit Programmes.
