I have many years’ experience in editing and post, for countless TV & cinema commercials, long-form, online content, trailers & corporate.
Equally comfortable working alone, as part of a team, or juggling a room full of clients, I’m known & well liked for my enthusiasm, client management, demeanour, creativity, communication, work ethic, and of course… dedication to the finest end result !

Although my skills extend to sound mixing & design, camera, and FX compositing (I’ve used Autodesk Flame for several years), I usually prefer to focus on Editing, which is my first love.

I have a mobile edit suite available, which can scale up or down depending on the project.
