A budding creative with approximately seven years experience working within media. An experienced camera operator and editor that has delivered content for a range of clients, industries and live events in deadline driven environments. Furthermore I’ve experience in studio management, castings, art events and hospitality. A professional sociable character that thrives in creative environments and enjoys a challenge.

A junior editor for a bustling production studio. Initially I started out assisting the senior editors by organsing media, sourcing music and generally setting up projects and edit suites (for client atteneded edit sessions). Before long I was involved with brainstorming ideas for potential clients and pitches and given my client project briefs and editing videos for some of the worlds largest banks and organisations including: Unilever. HSBC. Mazda. Gemalto. This was a fast paced work environment, and the role required me to edit content to a client brief/amends list, without the guidance of directors/producers/account manager. As mentioned it was a very busy studio, so I'd frequently juggling two or three major projects, which insists on good time management skills and being able to prioritise work flows. Finally, I would occasionally take on client/director attended edit sessions. This is certainly test of Premiere project management, and organisation of files, a steep learning curve that allowed me to push my editing speed and skills.
Studio manager and camera operator for a busy casting studio in central London. We delivered HD castings for online streaming and video play back for iPhone, iPad, and Android devices. It was essential the material was made available to the clients immediately (5-10min window). Responsible for maintaining casting suites, camera operating, lighting, organising rushes, and on occasion assisting casting directors with the short listing of auditions. Prioritising workflow and keeping calm under pressure was an essential part of this role, as open call castings could consist of seventy plus auditions in an eight hour session.
I graduated from Cardiff School of Art & Design with a BA (hons) in Fine Art. I gained experience within arts, theatre, and developed skills in traditional art practice and art history, before getting into cameras, film, and all things post-production. My time at university was split between organising live music and art's events and volunteering for a busy gallery and studio in Cardff where I assisted the curator in events organising, fund raising, promoting exhibitions and distributing promotional material across the city. A role that eventually allowed me to travel around Europe exhibiting my own work at major art galleries and venues, as well as filming and editing theatre/performances events. Later on volunteered for a South Wales based charity Amerlia Trust. A couple of friends and I redeveloped a large section of a public park and woodland, raised nearly a £1,000 for the charity, and spent time working with children and adults with learning difficulties.
