I am a personable and creative editor with over 10 years of professional experience.

From high-end natural history productions, to fast-paced live TV, and carefully crafted documentaries on sensitive subjects, my credits include the BAFTA-winning BBC Springwatch 2020, conservation ob doc series ‘Rescued Chimps of the Congo with Jane Goodall’, and BBC’s blue-chip series ‘Blue Planet II’ and ‘Seven Worlds One Planet’.

In the world of short form, I have cut over 200 films including digital series, music videos, social media promos, and short documentaries for digital platforms for BBC, Nat Geo, Fairtrade, Shelter, Microsoft 4Afrika, Integrate UK, and Dyson, among others.

Having worked in different countries and genres, I consider myself an adaptable individual who finds it easy to integrate with different teams, and who is quick to learn new formats and workflows. My educational background in music has helped me develop an acute sense of pacing and a strong interest in sound design. My experience in creating eye (and ear) catching short films feeds into my style of editing across genres, helping give that extra polish to the edit, as well as making me confident that I can tell a story as concisely as needed – often by getting involved in script editing too.

I work in Avid and Premiere, with intermediate skills in After Effects, and am able to edit content in English, Portuguese, and Spanish.

I’m fully set up for remote work, or to work in-house in and around Bristol.

Co-Manager and member of Bristol Editors Network.
