FOUNDER JEM LTD
“At this point, it doesn’t matter who you are! What you become will redefine who you are! We need to unlearn who we were.Because we have been wrongly taught “
Born in Hackney, East London he learned to create and innovate early – when you had very little…imagination was needed. In those days things were still hard, so making something from next to nothing was part of stretching his imagination and making his ideas possible. He could be found making planes and spaceships, was fascinated with television and the world of discovery it opened. He read a lot (including his favourite comic books), and was always helping at the local church and with neighbours – he enjoyed building and fixing things and would have liked to be an engineer.
At the mature age of 14, he bought a film camera and self-financed and produced his first documentary commemorating the great musician and civil rights campaigner Sam Cooke – who’s song “Change is Gonna Come” was used many years later on President Barrack Obama’s campaign to become the first black head of state for America.

Terry was based between London, New York and Los Angeles. He was given his own label ‘Down to Jam’ with the Motown – the first British person ever to do so – and helped to launch acts like Boyz ll Men, who went on to sell over 67 million records. Terry has also worked on TV specials with the Pavarotti and opera spectaculars, the Rolling Stones, Natalie Cole, Quincy Jones, Elton John, Queen, Madonna, Michael Jackson. Bob Geldof, Richard Branson and Virgin Group (to name but a few), heavy metal and rock acts. His live shows Smash Hits Awards, Top of the Pops and Radio 1 specials, and global broadcasts, such as 2000 Today – Millennium Broadcast, Our Common Future and the 2012 Olympics, were live spectacular television events.

His formal media career started with the BBC; he became the youngest head of department, producer & director of his time. He is one of history’s most innovative radio, television, music, and film producers. His influence was felt across the world. His work today involves many types of businesses looking for innovation and enhanced sales.
His impact on the British, American and worldwide creative media opened the doors and laid the foundation for the diversity in entertainment we know today. Although not without its own challenges, the BBC supported his conviction to change the media landscape and fight prejudices. In popular culture and politically he gave a voice and global exposure to many of the stars and celebrities who were refused coverage or promotion on other mainstream traditional media platforms.
