Co-Founder / Strategic Director / Social Media Geek

KEVIN

Kevin likes to be organised – which is ideal as he manages all our projects, as well as overseeing the day to day running of The Zoo.  He’s also addicted to social media!

He has worked in the media industry for over 15 years for Emap, GMG, Lonely Planet and Bauer Media.

He’s a Dad of two boys, writes a golf blog about his quest for a single figure handicap and loves cake. Lots of cake.

TOM

Tom loves animals, so much so, you can usually find him in a dark room drawing them all day!

Previously, Tom honed his skills working for a number of media businesses, such as Bauer Media and the BBC before co-founding Big Zoo Media in 2013.

He’s a Hull City fan and plays in goal for a 5 a side football team, which is slightly odd as he’s only 5ft 7.  Tom also wants to own a monkey.

STEVE

Steve is the man who knows people.  Steve also loves coffee and a chat about business – which is a perfect as he’s Big Zoo Media’s Business Development Manager.  He started in media the industry when black and white TV’s were all the rage, and has honed his skills over the last 20 years in print media, radio and telecoms at companies like Emap, Bauer Media and KCom.

These days, you’ll often see Steve in a local coffee shop with his iPad, embracing modern technology.  When not being a tech geek, he loves spending time with his family, and weekends at the caravan in Skipsea.

JAMES

James is the new kid on the block.  He’s not long out of university, and still has the beard to show.

He helps us out with most of our video projects, covering the sound as well as some camera work.  He’s also very happy staring at computer screens editing our projects.  We put it down to the long hours spent as a student playing on the X-box!

He doesn’t go out much, but when he does he likes to go to gigs and once sparked a social media frenzy after seeing the Arctic Monkeys!

VICKI

Vicki is the one that keeps everyone at Big Zoo in check.  She makes sure we run like a well oiled…animal.  She can do it all, accounts, planning and she’s the only one who can truly boss the photocopier!

Vicki loves nothing more than walking, watching films and… jigsaws.

GARY

Gary is a design genius.  If he doesn’t know it, it’s not worth knowing.  He’s also pretty handy with websites,  that’s what he tells us anyway.

Gary has been designing stuff since 1923, but he doesn’t look a day older than 30!  Amazing really.  We put it down to his love of holidays abroad and watching F1.
