About the Editor

I am a BAFTA Award Winning offline editor with over 18 years broadcast experience. I’ve worked for Sky and itv as a member of staff and more recently freelance making programmes for the BBC, ITV, C4 and C5.

On all projects I like to have a good creative input and help structure new formats successfully. Throughout an edit I use my key skills to contribute to the directors ideas and objectives making sure the finished programme is completed to the highest possible standard. My experience across different programme genres means that I have a good knowledge of the editing process and I am able to consistently deliver to a high quality whilst working under extreme pressure with or without a director or producer.

I am the co-director of Hornblower Film productions which was set up in 2012. We produce corporate films for various clients on a regular basis. I take care of the shooting, directing and editing.
