User Bio

I am a Final Cut Pro Certified Level One and Two Editor with over 10 years industry experience ranging from investigative journalism, wildlife, corporate, documentary, educational, multi-camera reality programming, comedy, film, live events, music videos, etc.... I have also worked on high pressure projects in Avid Media Composer. I have also helped extensively with script-writing on various projects I've worked on.

Programs and channels worked on include NatGeo Wild, BBC News, Carte Blanche, Hallmark, Sharp Shooter, SABC and Channel O. I'm a fully accredited S.A.G.E. member and have been awarded the S.A.G.E. acronym. I was signed with the South African branch with Soho Editors and used to work full time at Devereux-Harris.

I work primarily in Final Cut Pro and Avid Media Composer. I also work with Photoshop, DVD Studio Pro, Compressor and Soundtrack.

I love high pressure, tight deadline jobs and have a reputation for being a quick editor. I have an especially strong strength of constructing narratives as well an as a keen eye for shots that add value to the feel of the story. I thrive on bouncing ideas with my co-workers but am perfectly capable of being given a script and footage and building a piece on my own.

I have my own equipment, a 2.66 Ghz dual core 17 1/2" MacBook Pro with 2 dedicated 500 Gb LaCie Rugged plug and play drives which make me a completely portable editor. I am willing to travel to any location to suit the needs of the team who wishes to work with me.

I am more than happy to supply references upon request.

My contact details are the following and I am located in Midrand but am willing to travel:
