I'm an award-winning editor with a wealth of experience across a wide variety of programme making, from inception to final delivery. I'm very happy to work across all genres but I especially enjoy documentary work, where my storytelling skills really come to the fore. A strong sense of rhythm and pace, whether visually or on the soundtrack, complement my grasp of narrative structure.

I'm also well versed technically, and my experience grading and onlining (as well as directing and self-shooting) means I'm able to advise and troubleshoot at all stages of an edit. I'm happy to be brought in early in the production process, and consult on workflows and technical requirements as well as aesthetic and content matters. Alongside this I have a great deal of experience working with stories that are legally and ethically sensitive, understanding the unique considerations that need to be given in those cases.

I enjoy working in a collaborative team environment, stay calm when the pressure mounts and above all aim to make the edit an enjoyable, creative experience.

I live in the south west, but work across the country (and worldwide if needed!) with a London base for edits there. I also have a fully equipped edit/grading suite in a delightful rural location 40 mins from Bristol (with accommodation available) for a complete end-to-end post production service! Read Less
