I’m an Editor working in Drama, Comedy, Documentaries and Brand Promos. I’ve cut everything from feature length films to 30 second commercials, 5 minute comedy sketches to hard hitting documentaries. I like to keep busy!
I’ve cut 6 distributed features, the most recent, “The Pugilist” was nominated for the ‘Michael Powell Best British Film Award’ at the 71st Edinburgh Film Festival. I’ve recently cut my first episodes of Coronation Street, the long running TV Drama.
I’ve cut shorts funded by the BFI, Creative England & Film London which have screened at Festivals like Berlinale, New York Film Festival, Encounters, Raindance and lots of lovely ones you might not have heard of.
My dad used to read classic novels to me to get me to sleep, so I have a love of storytelling hardwired into my brain. At 10 i was introduced to the visceral power of cinema by Jurassic Park (I left the cinema in fear after 30mins and couldn’t come back in when i heard the screaming). I grew up mostly watching romantic comedies, sci-fi and melodramas, so I count “Star Trek 2: The Wrath of Khan” as a masterpiece of cinematic expression, along with “The Godfather” and “You’ve Got Mail”. When i’m not working I love going to see stand up comedy and music gigs, listening to comedy podcasts, and trying to do yoga to reduce my blubber.
