Bio

I have 20+ years experience in the post-production industry as an EDITOR, both on-line and offline. 

I’ve worked for two of Auckland’s largest post production houses, Images and Digipost as a full time editor. These houses serviced a multitude of clients from large advertising agencies and production companies through to full service for complex international television shows and films.

I’ve been working for Australasia’s largest TV Shopping channel network, Brand Developers, on long form and short form infomercials. I’ve recently edited, graded, and delivered MOOC content for the Philosophy department of the University of Auckland.

Over the period that I’ve been working in this industry, one of the most important things I’ve understood is that clients value TRUST.

You can trust me to provide excellent service, you can trust that I’ll complete a job to deadline, to the highest levels. Let’s get started!
