I have worked on various formats for the past eight years, including online and social content, films, commercials and broadcast shows, from reality, lifestyle entertainment to documentaries, for networks such as NBC, BBC, ZDF, Arte, Discovery Channel and Fox International, building a diversity of skills.
Currently, I am freelancing on a cooking series for Unilever for international release on their Unilever Food Services Academy App platform. Before that, I spent a year editing a factual documentary for BBC, ZDF and Arte based on thought experimentation taken to a new level, where theory is brought into practice supported by interviews from renowned experts in their relative fields, it was a VFX extensive show, but documentary and narrative editing are where I thrive. Check it out:
While my official title is an editor, who is proficient in Adobe suite, Avid and FCP, plus the ins and outs of post-production workflows, I am also multi-faceted – I have run post-production suites, I am a creative brain-stormer, researcher, colour grader, mixer, problem solver and first-class time manager. From concept to delivery, I strive to produce top-notch work because I’m dedicated to making sure every piece is unique and outstanding. I’m extremely motivated, organised, disciplined, love story-telling and a significant passion for entertainment and media.
