    About me

    An ambitious and enthusiastic individual with a proven creative career in Post Production. Also a varied Film and TV background with a keen interest to take a hands-on approach to daily challenges of a company. For the best part of 10 years I have been working with fellow Colourists, Clients, Grading Teams and other staff, including having an in-depth workflow knowledge and utilising organisational skills to the projects currently being graded in the department. I have recently completed Baselight grades and DI post workflows for several films which will be screening at worldwide film festivals over the year and have international distribution, I am very much looking forward to hearing the critics feedback. I enjoy keeping informed of the creative techniques and approaches being employed within colour grading, and actively being involved with technical support, editorial advances and workload management tasks. I take pleasure in meeting new and interesting people and working in teams. I am extremely keen to take on positions as a Colourist, believing I can fulfil a position as an extremely organised individual with a well developed attention to detail. I take pride in assisting a company to achieve excellence to reinforce their industry reputation.
