Hello, it’s nice to meet you. I’m Dan.

A film-maker. A marketer. A social media specialist.

I have a wife, Bethany and I have a daughter and son, River and Cove.

I like to make video content that resonates with people. Utilising over 10 years of marketing experience (incl. a BAHons in Management with Marketing degree) I’ve spent the last 3 years building an audience on social media with our family YouTube channel, creating content that people can relate to.

Additionally, my wife and I have been running RIVERCOVE Films producing videos for families, weddings and for global and local businesses (B2C & B2B).
