Film Editor

  • Location: London
  • Career stage: Experienced
  • Freelancer: Available

I’m a highly skilled film editor based in London (Avid - Premiere).

I graduated with distinction from the National Film & Television School in 2019 with Azaar, my graduate fiction, nominated for a BAFTA, a Royal Television Award and longlisted for a BIFA.

I was nominated for a Royal Television Postgraduate Editing Award in 2020 for Heat Wave - Postgraduate Animation Award Winner.

Films I’ve edited have premiered internationally at prestigious festivals such as Cannes International Critics' Week, Palm Springs and Annecy. Closer to home, they’ve screened in competition and won awards at festivals such as the BFI London Film Festival, EIFF and Sheffield Doc/Fest, amongst others.

Creatively versatile I’ve cut numerous shorts, both fiction and non-fiction, for broadcasters and funders such as Film4, BBC Films, BBC Arts, BFI, Screen Scotland and ARTE Creative.

I attended the Berlinale Talents 2020 Editing Studio and am a member of the BFI NETWORK x BAFTA Crew ’19/’20.

I’m drawn to urgent, unflinching and authored works that give voice to the original and unexpected and privilege marginalized voices both in front of and behind the camera.
