My work as an editor generally falls into two camps - I'm invested in pursuing a career as a narrative editor, which is to work on scripted productions such as TV drama and film. I've worked in this capacity more and more over the last few years, adding children's dramas and short film credits to my CV, and continually developing my own methodical, fast and instinctive approach to storytelling.
I'm also an experienced online editor; a role that allows me to be part of broad variety of production types, and can cover anything from colour grading to vfx to file-encoding and delivery; essentially, the finishing stages of a post-production workflow.

You're only as good as your last job, or so the saying goes. I've been lucky to work on a variety of different types of programming, especially as an online editor. Below are some favourite examples that I've worked on in either capacity.

A young refugee has come to Manchester in search of a new life, but it's come at a price. Brutalised at home and bullied at school, his only answer is to lash out at the world around him.
Based on a real events, Rabbit Punch is the first short film I've edited with director Keith Farrell, and we've gone on to make a couple of others since. It's been shown at many festivals across the world and has even won a couple, including best Best North West Short in Bolton 2017!
