After graduating with a Fine Art degree, I entered the film and television industry in 1997 as a runner, then assistant editor in commercials and promos with Sam Sneade. I then began assisting in drama on both tv and film projects such as HUSTLE for Kudos, THE CANTERBURY TALES for BBC and KING ARTHUR

for Jerry Bruckheimer Films.

I've edited many award-winning dramas over the last fifteen years including Otto Bathurst’s CRIMINAL JUSTICE starring Ben Whishaw, for which I received a BAFTA nomination and won an RTS Award. I also cut Otto's FIVE DAYS starring David Oyelowo and Rory Kinnear (also receiving a BAFTA nomination for editing). I have edited Luke Watson’s THE VILLAGE and Peter Hoar’s BREAKING THE MOULD and in 2016, Ben Anthony's DON’T TAKE MY BABY won a BAFTA for Best Single Drama.

Other credits include THE LAST KINGDOM for Peter Hoar; GUERRILLA, directed by Sam Miller and John Ridley and starring Idris Elba; THE BOY WITH THE TOPKNOT for Lynsey Miller as well as CURFEW for Colm McCarthy and Christopher Smith and WAR OF THE WORLDS for Richard Clark.


I have been a BAFTA member for many years and have sat on the BAFTA television jury. I have edited numerous short films including POMMEL for Paris Zarcilla and BFI/Creative England which one Best UK Short Film at the East End Film Festival in 2018. My most recent projects have been UNSAID STORIES: GENERATIONAL for Alrick Riley and IT'S A SIN for Peter Hoar, written by Russell T Davies.
