TV & FILM EDITOR
TV & FILM EDITOR
I've been editing professionally for over 15 years, cutting everything from short dramas on 16mm film, to multi-camera music performances on Avid, Lightworks and Final Cut Pro.
Following a year of experimentation in the Visual Arts department at the University of California, San Diego I was lucky enough to train at the National Film & Television School in Beaconsfield, specialising in editing.
I started off my professional career working at GM Editing on salubrious Scrubs Lane in the late 90's, where my first broadcast credit was on the BBC's flagship consumer show Watchdog.
Over the following few years, working on a continuous stream of fast-turnaround short-form VT's for Watchdog and the Holiday programme gave me a good instinct for pace and story-telling, as well as the chance to work with various directors & producers, many of whom I still work with today.
I moved into cutting long-form broadcast entertainment shows & documentaries before leaving GM Editing to go freelance in the early noughties.
Since going freelance I've worked steadily for all the main UK TV networks, across multiple genres.
From such Channel 4 classics as How Clean Is Your House and Scrapheap Challenge to the BBC's flagship science series Horizon, and
Channel 5's BAFTA nominated travelogue, Paul Merton In China, my early freelance career was exciting and varied.
More recently I spent over 6 months in the heart of BBC Television Centre before its sad demise, cutting all three episodes of Andrew Marr's documentary series, The Diamond Queen, chronicling the work of Queen Elizabeth II in her Diamond Jubilee year.
I was privileged to edit the last ever series that Sir David Frost made before his untimely death, Frost On Sketch Shows for BBC4
I've also cut a lot of lighter, more entertaining material in the form of Richard E. Grant's Hotel Secrets for Sky Atlantic, and the International Emmy and IFTA award winning 50 Ways To Kill Your Mammy for Sky One.
Most recently I've been lead editor on the last three series of Channel 4's top rating property series, Grand Designs. Helping it to finally win a BAFTA in the features category in 2015. I was also lucky enough to cut (and share vodka with) Joanna Lumley on Joanna Lumley's Trans-Siberian Adventure for ITV, and its very popular follow-up series', Joanna Lumley's Japan & Joanna Lumley's India.
