PROFILE & SHOWREEL

ABOUT ME

I’ve been working as a creative editor for over 16 years. I started in a London-based film marketing company where I edited hundreds of TV campaigns and trailers for major films such as 'WALL•E', 'Up' (Disney), 'The Hunger Games' (Lionsgate) and 'Ted' (Universal). Since becoming a freelancer I have worked on a wide range of content, including a children’s reality TV series for Nickelodeon, promos for the Disney Channel, digital online pieces for brands such as Nike and EE and a 30-minute guide to Las Vegas for Virgin Atlantic.

I provided additional editing for 'Next Goal Wins', the critically acclaimed, feature-length documentary following the fortunes of American Samoa, the lowest ranking national football team in the world. It was released in UK cinemas in May 2014 and won BIFA's Best British Documentary 2014. Most recently I was involved in a huge European campaign for the game 'Final Fantasy XV', editing a variety of commercials and content for online, TV and cinemas.

I still get great joy from editing after all these years. For me it’s the most exciting part of any production; when the story takes shape and the film becomes alive.
