He has landed a post as executive producer for News Corp- and Telstra-owned Foxtel Networks, which has moved into original programming through series such as Crimes That Shook Australia.

He has been freelancing and working on individual projects since exiting his last post.

He had joined Hidden Universe producer December after leaving the UK, where he had established and run Power Struggle producer Rival with Steve Wynne, who is now running the television division at London-based Pretzel Films.
