About me
Award winning London based film and video editor with motion graphics skills and over 10 years experience in the edit suit ranging from international music labels and artists to leading multi-platform content producers in the UK along with boutique and digital agencies. Creative, confident and easy to work with. Also directed a number of experimental films and music videos. AWARDS include British Short Film Festival Best Experimental Short, BFI Script Development Grant for "Filament" and grants from Arts Council England.

Broad skill set including directing, editing, tapeless workflows, ISIS storage, DVCAM, compositing, grading, chroma keying, motion tracking, animation (2D mainly), visual effects and story-boarding using Avid 8.0, After Effects, Final Cut Pro, Premier Pro, Photoshop.

    How We Die“In the Mahābhārata, a revered ancient Hindu text, the King Yudhishthira is asked, “Of all the world’s wonders, which is the most wondrous?” Yudhishthira answers, “That no person, though he or she sees others dying all around them, believes that he or she will die.”
