About me

 

I am an energetic, enthusiastic, and self-motivated individual. On top of having experience in self-shooting, I have also produced, camera operated, and edited video which has been broadcast on BBC Look North. For my contribution towards BBC Music Day 2015, I received praise from current Director General of BBC, Tony Hall. Despite holding a strong interest in several elements of video production, I am particularly keen to explore and develop a career in editing for film.
