About the Editor

Hi there - I am a Manchester based Avid editor (with my own full studio if required) with over 20 years experience working on everything from commercial, promo & corporate to broadcast & documentary.

I have cut a long list of amazing artists and some of the world's biggest brands. From artists like The Killers, Tiesto and Babyshambles to brands like Adidas, Microsoft, Unilever, EA sports, UFC and Universal. I have a lot of experience cutting commercials and high impact short form work however I am equally comfortable cutting long-form and the work I most enjoy is crafting fascinating and emotionally driven content.  

I'm very interested in Documentary work and I'm currently working on a number of short docs, with a handful of different directors, about everything from rapping grannies and disabled skiers, to Holocaust survivors and big wave surfers.  My last self-made documentary "OnePunch - The Eddie Copeland Story" screened at a number of festivals world wide (including our own Manchester International Film Festival) and picked up awards along the way. 

Before going freelance in 2012 I spent 15 years working as head of production/post (and editor) at an agency I helped start so my Broadcast CV is lighter than some.  I am however fast, meticulous & experienced on Avid (have cut on it since 1998)  I have run and maintained my own edit suite for 20 years and I am therefore very knowledgable in the whole technological process of the full production and post workflow; having worked in most of the areas of content creation over the years and managed productions from start to completion.

I regularly work for both BBC Learning and for BBC Sport cutting broadcast content and I recently post-produced the entire Supermovers Campaign edit for BBC Sport, BBC Learning and the Premier League.

I feel I am easy to work with and make it my aim to get on with everyone; something that has been instilled in me as a client facing representative of a company for 15+ years and also as a human being :)

I do not list myself as an online editor however I can, and regularly do, complete this role for both myself and clients; I can colour correct and prep/deliver for TV output when absolutely required and have my own symphony suite but this is not my chosen area; I am very much a storyteller.

I was a very early adopter of streaming and encoding for the internet (even before broadband) and therefore I have extensive knowledge when it comes to file formats, cameras, codecs and online delivery. 

Similarly whilst I can (and do) use Resolve, Photoshop and After effects I'm certainly not a colourist or a VFX guy.

Ultimately I just like making cracking content that inspires, motivates and informs. The fact that I get paid for this is the cherry on the top of the cake.
