The Dumping Ground is an award-winning CBBC Drama and spin-off to the Tracy Beaker series' that aired many years ago. I've been involved with show for several years, starting off as the onliner in the second half of S4, before moving into the offline for S7 where I assisted and eventually cut my first episode. It's been a privilage to have a great working relationship with this production, one which will hopefully continue into ensuing series of this brilliant show.
My work as an editor generally falls into two camps; I'm focussed on pursuing a career as a long-form narrative editor, which is to work on scripted productions such as TV drama and film. I've worked in this field more and more over the last few years, continually developing my own methodical, fast and instinctive approach to storytelling.
I'm also an experienced online editor, a role that gets me involved with a variety of different types of productions, and can cover anything from colour grading to vfx to file-encoding and delivery - essentially, the finishing stages of a post-production workflow.
