Edward's journey has been interesting and rewarding, which started at NZBS.

Edward is currently the Head of Operations at a Film Locations company  Edward runs the day to day management of the organisation and two other sister companies, - which creates and supplies the permitting software for much of the film industry.  All the big productions that go to London generally go through their office - Bond, Marvel films, Fast and the Furious etc.

Edward ended up as Head of Operations through a winding road. He went to TVNZ Wellington for his internship and then got a role with Breakfast, the evening news, and sport.

After roles working for Ngapuhi Iwi running some of their youth development programmes and teaching in Bristol (UK), Edward moved to London to work with a youth development programme called the National Citizen Service. This eventually led to Edward running a national team of 200+ across 8 offices. All these skills set him up perfectly to work at FilmFixer.
