Having been fortunate to work with an extensive list of clients including IMG, Aviva, Adidas, 02, Gatorade, Daily Mail, MasterCard, Premiership Rugby, CloudTag and more; I have worked on digital and broadcast edits for ITV, BBC, BT Sport and Sky among others. Beginning my experience within the industry as Location Scout & Unit Manager on films Deviation and Hard Boiled Sweets; I advanced to a Post Production Assistant role at Objective Productions. Gaining post experience on shows like The Cube, Derren Brown: The Experiments, John Bishops Britain & Tool Academy, I have gone on to develop as an Editor to broadcast level using AVID Newscutter/Media Composer, Final Cut Pro and Premier Pro. I have also continued to work for IMG within a Preditor capacity – Producing, Shooting, Editing, Voicing, Scripting and Distributing both daily and weekly coverage of The Challenge Tour on location around Europe. I have worked with Perform as an editor for over 3 years and have worked with many internal and external producers, cutting highlights and magazine pieces for online and TV. I have good knowledge of video and codecs and have liaised across departments including MCR, A/V and Graphics where I have had input into the creation of After Effects videos.
Editing news and highlights across various Perform products including the ITV1 Aviva Highlight Show, WTA Highlights, SABC News and the PSA Show, in addition to any creative projects for clients including Matercard, BT, RBS and Guinness among many others. Alongside this I produce and edit highlights for many sports such as EuroLeague, FIBA, A League, International Cricket, International Rugby and many more following the sports calender, distributing to BT, BBC, ITV and online.
