About me

As an editor and Traffic/QC/Edit/Production assistant with over seven years experience in broadcasting media, I know my diverse skills and qualifications will make me an asset to any visual/audio media oriented project team. I have always been drawn to visual story telling and my degrees covered everything from pre to post-production process in broadcasting, from scriptwriting to producing, directing and editing. I’ve continued to build my skill set with sound production and camera courses that have given me flexibility to work extensively in the visual media industry. Working with smaller production companies has allowed me to participate on many diverse projects from current affairs and entertainment programs in TV, to directing and editing audio books. A couple of highlights were the filming the ‘making of’ video of the ‘Deenola’ fashion brand advert in Paris and co-producing, filming and editing two seasons of ‘Culture Mode’ fashion magazine that was broadcast on Telesud. I am passionate about my work and operate at my best as a part of a dynamic team. I always take active interest in topics I'm assigned to and that way I am able to bring more context, efficiency and understanding to the resulting output. I can offer fast delivery in editing and uploading of online content, ability to propose, discuss and execute new and creative ideas (as well as providing disastrous karaoke at the office Christmas party!).
