I have over 15 years of experience cutting on Avid for all the major channels and many digital channels. I can adapt to fast-turnaround, as well as longer edits. I can always find a story and can organise archive or sources to match. I am particularly good at getting the best from contributors, to create flowing conversations, as well as using music creatively.
I can and have moved between comm or presenter led, fact ent and obs doc, as well as content driven documentaries and I have cut programmes covering a very wide range of subjects.
I am based in Brighton but usually commuted to London. I have now moved to working remotely. Working with a remote edit producer has been a very efficient way of cutting for me. I am also happy to work in the edit suite, either with an edit producer or independently.
