With over 20 years as one of our most recognisable faces on Australian television news, Jim has stepped back from the camera to implement complex media campaigns for clients.

With a background in journalism including as the Chief Political Reporter for the Seven Network at the NSW Parliament for 14 years, Jim later became a Senior Advisor to the NSW Government during the Olympic Games and later for the Treasurer.

He designed and rolled out roadshows for trade and business opportunities around the Olympics, and later ran Government campaigns around insurance reform and tax reform for registered clubs and also poker machine operators.

As a consultant he has since worked on controversial changes to the Liquor Laws to legalise small bars, the amalgamation of the Australian Jockey Club and the Sydney Turf Club, the development of the White Bay Terminal, an increase in cruise ship fees anchoring in Sydney, and a campaign against local government amalgamations.
Jim also provides video production services and media training.
