EMPLOYMENT HISTORY

I graduated from the London International Film School in January 2001. I started editing low budget short films whilst working as a runner, in a small postproduction facility called Head First, in Soho. Working in the machine room I learned everything about tape formats and decks; I became an Avid technical assistant and worked as an assistant editor on many projects. I also learnt to grade and online using their Avid Symphony.

I started working as a freelance editor in 2002 cutting observational and factual documentaries for The Community Channel, Sparkling Productions and Palm Pictures amongst others. I worked as a VT editor for the series Through the Keyhole (hosted by Sir David Frost) for BBC One. In August 2003 I cut my first prime time terrestrial TV documentary for BBC One; Car Wars (Mentorn-Folio).

Over the next 2 years I cut several "police shows" for them; as well as these BBC documentaries I also cut several films for Discovery Channel, Channel Five and two music documentaries for Palm Pictures and Perfect Balance.

In 2005 I joined Perfect Balance as a company director for 3 years. Over that period I continued cutting films for BBC, Channel 4 and Discovery and worked on award winning documentaries Laya and Trawlermen.

Since leaving Perfect Balance I have cut several Unreported World documentaries for Channel 4 as well as other observational documentaries and science films for Discovery and National Geographic.

Other highlights include high budget documentary How the Universe Works featuring Physicists Stephen Hawking and Michio Kaku amongst others, as well as a small human story Charlotte Story (nominated for an R.T.S. award) and big budget drama documentary 9/11 State of Emergency featuring Condoleezza Rice and Donald Rumsfeld.

Since 2014 I have been working mostly in Spain. As well as editing I have been working as an edit supervisor on documentary series Clandestino con David Beriain, as well as the award winning series Amazonas Clandestino.

During that time I have also cut three feature length docs for Discovery Max and Discovery Canada.
