Oliver Mellan - Creative Producer

It makes me smile when people tell me that my enjoyment for life is contagious.

I grew up in a family of artists that traveled often and loved learning about world cultures.  My work as a director and producer has led me to explore the areas of visual storytelling and multimedia production, with a focus on marketing new products and technologies. I apply design thinking and a fun approach to everything I do.
