About the Editor

I have a solid track record in the edit on a broad range of high profile programmes for UK and worldwide broadcasters. Experienced in working to tight deadlines on long series, I can also be left alone to be creative in the edit.With a keen sense of story and broad musical tastes, I am frequently involved in the development of un-piloted series in the cutting room, creating the format and stylisation for new shows and refreshing returning series. I collaborate well with others, giving useful feedback to directors still shooting in the field, liaising with graphic designers, composers, online editors and the dub.
