    About me

    I have been working in film for the past 6 years. I believe we increasingly live in an age where the mechanics of telling a story are more recognised than the message we put out; to capture, deviate and finesse is key in order to communicate in new ways that ensure people will watch. I have always believed in film as a tool for communication.

    Over the years I have gained experience of working on ob-docs, studio shoots, chat shows, live shoots and short films. As a freelance filmmaker I have experience of both pre and post-production; I have written numerous treatments for music videos and promos. I have worked both as a self-shooter and editor and as part of a larger crew; each position requires a different understanding of the production process.

    In Post-production I have accrued knowledge of working with the Adobe suite; Premiere and After Effects and have a broad-base understanding of other programs within the suite and make sure I keep up-to-date with changes. I am also accustomed in working with other editing programs (Resolve, FCP) and delivering footage between them.
