James O'Malley operating the TriCaster
James O'Malley reporting the news


I am James O’Malley, a film & television professional (with a valid NZ work visa) seeking a new challenge. I recently relocated to New Zealand from the San Francisco Bay Area with my family and have experience in production as well as digital design. 

My passion is storytelling. I love creating compelling and engaging content that audiences want to see and that drives engagement. Creativity is the central component of what I do and finding myself in the flow state is what makes me happiest.

I have experience working in teams, independently, as well as in a combination of the two. I am able to be flexible and adapt to changing situations, and possess a positive, can-do attitude. One of the things my diverse employment experience has provided me with is lots of experience in thinking outside the box and producing a quality product with limited resources.

My first love was travel. I have travelled extensively throughout the USA, Australia, Ireland, UK, Japan, and South East Asia. The experiences on the road have made me resourceful and resilient. 

I am a creative, organised, and perceptive person with an easy-going personality. I can deliver professional products within tight time frames. After being a golf pro for a number of years, I am also good at being able to engage with all kinds of people. One notable thing about me is that I’ve read all of David Foster Wallace’s Infinite Jest. Every last word!

Please contact me to see how I can help your business by utilising my diverse set of skills and experience.
