Freelance Video Editing

I have over 15 years of video editing experience, cutting brand-funded, documentary projects and TV commercials, working with a mix of remote, on-site and in the field editing.

For remote projects you can upload high-res footage (up to 200GB) directly to my WeTransfer account. I'll create a stress free workflow that works for you - keeping your project on time and on budget.

My USP is flexibility so don't hesitate to drop me a line to discuss projects of any size. I'll give you an immediate quote and a breakdown of the workflow, from planning the edit to uploading the finished product.


Commercial projects include titles for the BBC, Idents and TVCs for ITV and Channel 4 and Documentaries for Broadcast and VOD.


My Brand-Funded credits include M&S, Siemens, Unilever, Joules, Rakuten, Tesco, Nando's, Visit Britain, Nike, Nissan, Abarth and Rolex.
