Energised, tight cuts with clarity of content and compelling energy, while working to challenging schedules. I have many years of broadcast experience and have cut for all terrestrial channels as well as many digital channels. 

I love pacing the rhythm of the shots to maximise the impact and emotion of the music or selecting content from contributors to ensure they come across strongly.

I like working in a team and enjoy collaborating with Edit Producers, or I can work independently. I have worked in most factual styles including observational docs, factual entertainment and long form docs. I’m based in Brighton and generally travel to London for work.
