    About me

    Began six years ago doing professional work in film and television doing whatever tasks were required of me in the studios as a junior editor, DIT, data wrangler, logger and runner. Good work ethic and the ambition to further improve past experience. I like to be there from the word go and to learn new skills. I have had very good references from those I have worked with in the past that demonstrate an ability to learn on the job and have the skills related to shooting video, video lighting and sound. I want to work on a greater variety of programmes by getting more stable employment for a regular broadcaster to get the experience that I need to fulfil my ambition and become an editor in due course. I find the process fun and the end product thrilling.

    My previous experience have included working as a data wrangler and senior logger for BBC Studioworks for the past three years on Strictly Come Dancing seasons 13-15, and five years working at Broadley Studio as a junior editor and production runner. The work activities included undertaking general office management duties such as studio booking arrangements, client communication, equipment delivery and autocue operations.

    It was while there I developed my problem solving, research and teamwork skills and gained valuable insight and hands-on experience working in film and tv, but also other forms of media such as live web broadcasts, advertisements and music videos. Being based in London has given the advantage to previous employers that I can be relied upon to show up on time early and stay after hours to lock up facilities and work late if need be, without the worry of costly travel expenses.

    Additional Information

    I have a UK driver's licence & my own car.

    I am proficient in the use of editing software, such as Final Cut X, Premiere Pro, Forscene, Cinegy, Avid Media Composer and Photoshop
