High-end TV Trainee Finder alumni

I’m a documentary/current affairs editor living in London, who's looking to transition into High End TV Drama as an Assistant Editor.

Part of the ScreenSkills's 2018/19 HETV Editorial Trainee Finder Scheme, I was an editorial trainee on a 6-part, one-hour drama series, processing rushes and delivering turnover assets. I'm now second assistant editing for The Light (The Forge production).

I’m easy to get on with and take great pride in everything I do, always professional in the most stressful of times. I have experience editing on location around the world and adapt well to changing environments.

I'm proficient in Avid Media Composer, Adobe Premiere Pro, Media Encoder, After Effects, Photoshop, and Davinci Resolve. I have a UK driving license and understand Mandarin on an intermediate level.
