Freelance Video Editor and Animator



About me

I studied at Central Saint Martins in London and graduated in 2011 with a Masters in Performance Design and Practice. I have worked in the area of post-production and film since graduating, and have spent the last 3 years working on a freelance basis as a Film Editor and 2D Animator, based in London. Armed with my Canon 700D I also make a very practical Preditor - working from conception to completion of any given project.
