Cliff's employment experience has taken him across the globe. Prior to moving to the United States, Cliff trained and worked ten years
at the BBC in England, where he was responsible for editing nationally broadcast TV shows, such as: weekly magazine style series, full
length documentaries, special features, music specials and comedy series. Shortly after becoming the youngest editor in the history
of the BBC, Cliff was honored for his contributions to the British network TV series "The Clothes Show", as part of the small editing
team that was awarded the national BAFTA for "Best Videotape Editor" from the British Academy of Film & Television Arts.
In 1994 Cliff relocated from England to the United States, taking a new position as Senior Editor at VT2 Studios, the company formally
known as VT/TV Graphics & Post. His responsibility was to head editing operations and creative for this small, yet highly respected
editing and graphic design boutique. His client list quickly grew and included advertising agencies, independent program producers,
and major corporations. In 2001, he was promoted and took on a management role as General Manager. But even with his leadership
and management responsibilities, Cliff insisted on keeping in touch with his creative roots and enjoyed editing for his top clients. His
editing work continued to win awards and has been recognized with several regional ADDYs, National Tellies and an Emmy.
In early 2009 Cliff resigned his position at VT2 to pursue his creative interests and open his own post production company
"Cliff Davis Editorial". In early 2010 he moved his operations to its current location in the upscale Houston Galleria area. This new space
allows Cliff Davis Editorial to offer his clients a host of creative production and postproduction services in a professional, creative
and fun enviroment.
