    About me

    I have several years' experience in a wide range of media activities. Adaptability, breadth of knowledge /talent are some of my key defining traits. I started off as a sound recording studio engineer (many years ago) and worked in both London and Manchester. Since then I have been involved in a broad range of filming and broadcast work, most recently graduating to the level of DOP / Camera Op / FCP Editor on TV commercials and web videos.

    I am well acquainted with all HD camera technologies up to Sony XDCAM as well as Pro shooting requirements with DSLRs.

    Generally, I have very broad technical and creative aptitudes and enjoy being part of a creative team. I'm happy to take on any role within the process and adapt well to any circumstances. I am a diligent, honest, hard working, mature and enthusiastic person with a strong sense of responsibility and commitment but I also like to have a good laugh too - of course.
