Hey, I'm a film editor.
Which also means I tell stories. And I like to tell them WELL!
I discovered editing fortuitously. An art form I had never considered, or even knew about. I didn’t go to film school and I’ve had no formal training. I’ve learnt to cut intuitively. Just as every piece of writing has a certain rhythm and pace, so does an edit. This very cadence is determined by the cut, a precise moment to end or start something new.
Over the last 18 years I have collected numerous craft awards and have worked on many award winning projects. I started in commercials and have since expanded into to feature length work.
If I’m not editing you’ll find me on the beach with my wife, kids and our three-legged dog.
