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.

Spot Bots is an animated interactive show for Cbeebies, and one of the most challenging online projects I've ever worked on. Almost all of the vfx work was done 'in the box' - chroma keying, magic sparkles, glows and such applied using Boris and Sapphire effects in Avid - I really pushed the editing software to the limits of what it can do... take a look at the second slide below, a screenshot of one of the completed onlines - impressive eh?!
