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 feature 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 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. Recent credits include feature film BALLYWALTER for Prasanna Puwanarajah (BFI/Screen Ireland/ Screen Northern Ireland) and IT'S A SIN for Peter Hoar, written by Russell T Davies which aired this year on Channel 4 and HBO Max. I am currently editing Netflix's HALF BAD for Colm McCarthy, written by Joe Barton, based on the trilogy by Sally Green.
