SUMMARY - I am an organised, creative and driven editor with experience editing online promotional and eductional content for big clients as well as broadcast assembly editing and edit assistant credits for Docs and Fact/Ent programmes. I have established skills in: quickly reviewing and selecting key elements from stories, weaving actuality with interviews and GVs, cutting sizzler and taster tapes, implementing client feedback, sound mixing, colour grading and wrangling footage. I am fully profecient in Premiere Pro and confident in wrangling different codecs and cutting with AVID and Final Cut. I am a competent Spanish speaker and have experience interviewing and translating for broadcast. Last year I developed additional shooting and communication skills by working on location for Channel 4 and UKTV docs.

EDUCATION - First class honours in media production and theory BA (University of Sussex) The course covered critical analysis of the media industry and storying telling methods while also providing technical training in researching, filming and editing my own documentaries.

FREELANCE VIDEO GRAPHER - In between television contracts I have freelanced as a videographer and produced a range of videos for different clients. I also find time to collaborate with other filmmakers in order to submit innovative ideas for film festivals. In 2014 I won 'Best Documentary' London Portobello for my film 'Squaring Up: Chessboxing'. BBC & ITV News featured clips from my film in their programmes in 2015.
