  • Location: Leeds / Watford
  • Career stage: Entry
  • Freelancer: Available

I am an aspiring editor, currently studying at Leeds Beckett University and the festival director at Watford Short Film Festival.
I have had experience in the Film and TV industry, working for three weeks at ITV in their content delivery department and live broadcasting EFL coverage with Sky Sports. I am currently a member of the live broadcast team as a vision mixer and graphic designer for MCM Comic Con. My film work has appeared at several film festivals including 'Feel the Reel International' in Scotland and 'Croydon International Film Festival' in England.
As an editor, I am experienced with the following editing tools:
- AVID Media Composer
- DaVinci Resolve
- Adobe Premiere Pro CS6
- Adobe After Effects CS6
- Adobe Photoshop CS6

I aim to achieve further experience and in the live broadcast/post-production sector by learning more in-depth and complex methods of integrating motion graphics into live broadcast and researching the best possible methods to create a professional multi-camera broadcast for a live audience to watch.
