He has with his team executed thousands of projects, and their clients include Will Smith, The Pope and Red Bull.

Driven by a passion for supporting small business, during the global pandemic of 2020, companies faced a crisis; Timothy partnered with Sebastian Bates to launch FTEN X Academy.
A community of Entrepreneurs in Dubai with one primary focus, helping companies pivot online rapidly. Within a few months of starting FTEN X Academy, they connected over 600 businesses, conducted 40+ live interviews and achieved a No.1 Business and Entrepreneur podcast on iTunes called the Round Pegs and Square Holes.
Which includes content with some of the world’s most inspiring entrepreneurs, industry experts, and best-selling authors.

As the official ambassador for Sony Alpha, Timothy regularly holds keynotes worldwide to produce films and content using Sony’s latest product range. He was also for 2020 the professional ambassador for the PXW-FX9.

Timothy’s background in producing content spans ten years. He originally started as a DOP / Editor and was tutored by Ex-BBC engineer Peter Farrow. By the age of 23, Timothy had already produced over 100 films and a series of content for many motorsport brands and platforms.

After two years of working with Peter, they both decided to enter into a joint venture with Rajeev Virani, founder of First and Productions India and become equal partners in a new chapter to build First and Ten Productions UAE. (known as FTEN and FTEN X and FTEN X Academy today)

The company quickly grew and within six years emerged into a team size of 15 where they became internationally recognised as a premium production house for the Middle East / India Region.

His Vision is for FTEN to become the region’s leading production house. Aimed at helping entrepreneurs develop high quality, digital assets to stand out amongst the noise and rapidly pivot online.
