Meet the Team


Leon Bickerstaffe

Founding Partner

With a degree in Aerospace Engineering and a 10-year career in oil & gas operations, it’s very much a measure twice, cut once approach. With an eye for detail and the drive to push through, Leon is a great match for Liquorice Productions and a key driving force behind its inception, development & future growth. Residing in Dubai since 1995, there isn’t much Leon doesn’t know about Dubai and the Middle East. Regularly seen cycling and an avid motocross enthusiast, rest assured it’s not all work and no play.

Jordan Bickerstaffe

Founding Partner & Creative Director

Receiving a camera as a present at the age of 12 started the obsession that became a career. Having graduated from SAE Dubai with a Bachelor of Arts in Film Production & The Northern Film School, Leeds UK with a Bachelor of Arts in Film and Moving Image Production, Jordan has already made a large impact with ties to the BBC and regional UK television studios and is continuing that success with Liquorice Productions here in Dubai. With a deep routed passion for film & photography, Jordan is pushing the boundaries of not just local, but global film making. An extreme sports & motocross devotee, the camera isn’t far away capturing all the thrills… and spills.

Emma Wood

Creative Illustrator

Passing up such a talent for creativity & illustration wasn’t an option. We had to have Emma as part of the Liquorice team. Emma has provided us with our own award winning in-house creative illustrator.

Having been brought up in a creative environment it seemed natural for Emma to pursue a creative career path. Gaining a First Class Bachelor’s Degree at Edinburgh Napier University in Events Design, Marketing and Management, Emma decided to return to the UAE. Over the last few years Emma has been predominantly working in the field of sports events design and management with responsibility for developing event concepts and illustrative storyboards. Emma has been associated with a variety of projects for both corporate and community events, for international brand names such as Red Bull, Vans and Converse.

Emma brings additional creativity to Liquorice Productions, where together we are able to offer our clients an in-house turnkey creative solution..
