Key skill:
Video Editor with over twenty years experience.
I am an experienced and versatile Editor of factual programmes for broadcast television. I confidently edit across all genres; from documentaries to magazine shows to factual entertainment. Formerly at ITV in the Midlands, I have been in this role for twenty two years and a freelancer for fourteen. I am based near Birmingham, but also work in other locations - including London, Manchester, Leeds and Plymouth.

My recent broadcast credits are:

A&E Live Factual Entertainment Optomen ITV1 50' x3
Part of a team of editors making fast turnaround Obs Doc inserts for a series of live programmes celebrating 70 years of the NHS. Presented by Davina McCall, over three evenings, from the busy A&E Department at Leeds General Infirmary.

Made in Britain Factual Entertainment Daisybeck Studios ITV4 50’ Pilot and first episode
A behind the scenes look at the manufacturing processes of some iconic products - all made in Britain. Workers reveal what makes their products special; from bats to boots and watches to Wagon Wheels.

Equally at home as part of a team or working independently, I regularly structure from rushes and contribute ideas to scripts. I can keep to the schedules, whilst still delivering the high standards expected. I’ll maintain an attention to detail, even on ‘fast turnaround’ programmes. I particularly enjoy editing with music to create sequences with drama.

Among my career highlights are:
