I am creative video editor based in London and have over 6 years of industry experience in both short and long form content, including Branded Content, Documentary and Scripted Dramas. I previously worked at several London studios as both a full time editor and freelancer. In my last full time role at ShootMedia I was employed as their Senior Editor. I edit in Adobe Premiere Pro and utilise Audition, AfterEffects and DaVinci Resolve for sound, graphics and colour grading respectively as required. I am motivated by a passion for storytelling and creativity, which I bring to every project. I’m an excellent communicator and as comfortable working with producers and directors as I am crafting an edit by myself.
