I have the latest AVID set-up at home on an extremely fast PC, and am happy to remote in. 
I am a BAFTA-winning editor with 18 years experience at the highest level of TV production. 

I am particularly familiar with devising new programmes, establishing the visual style for shows such as Drawers Off and Snog Marry Avoid which I co-devised, directed and edited. 

I can write and edit scripts and have Directed multi-camera shows like Big Brother and Fame Academy. After 16 years working in London I am now based in Manchester.
