I’m an Editor working mainly in Features, Documentaries and Shorts. I’ve cut for the BBC, Channel 4, Discovery, Sony, Disney and lots of companies who are good but you’ve probably not heard of.
My first feature film “Arthur and Merlin” (can you guess what it’s about?) premiered at the BFI Southbank in London, and was in the top 5 on iTunes when released. Since then i’ve cut several features currently being distributed, including The Pugilist which premiered at The Berlinale, and have two more scheduled for 2017.
I’ve cut shorts funded by the BFI, Creative England & Film London which have screened at Festival you’ve heard of around the world (and lots of lovely ones you haven’t)
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 when I was unable to cope with the fear induced by Jurassic Park (I left the cinema and couldn’t come back in when i heard the screaming). I grew up mostly watching silly comedy, 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 “Airplane!”. 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.
