Bio

I am an adaptable video editor and a creative storyteller with experience working in a range of different content, for both journalistic organisations and creative agencies. I am energetic and motivated with a keen sense for video trends and a proven ability in bringing stories to life in a format, style and delivery that informs and entertains.

 

I have an experienced and high-level technical understanding of all levels of the post-production workflow, from ingest and transcode to online, delivery and archive. I have worked with and maintained server systems for a variety of different department sizes from TV broadcast studio to online content agency. I have extensive experience delivering to foreign markets, localising and delivering assets for a multitude of languages and markets.

 

I have a developed understanding of social media and best practices for online video. I stay across developments across platforms and technology.
