Bio

From an early age, I was immersed in the world of the creative arts. Not as the privileged offspring of a renowned thespian or famous musician, but the quiet son of a theatre usherette. Back then, for my folks, money was tight so rather than pay a babysitter my mother would take me to work with her at the theatre. There, I would sit silently in the auditorium, captivated by countless hours of plays, musicals and pantomimes.
 
I obviously didn’t realise it at the time, but now recognise this exposure to such a variety and volume of performance at such a tender age, cemented in me, almost unconsciously, the language of visual storytelling.
 
A career in the theatre would have been an obvious progression, but to the teenage me, the medium of television was more enticing. By the age of 20 I had landed my first job in TV, at the BBC, copying rushes tapes for leading programmes like The Clothes Show. Three years on I was editing short films for a live daily show and later cutting regularly for flagship BBC shows including Top Gear. Aged just 26, I resigned my staff position to pursue my career as a freelance film editor.
 
Spool forward seventeen years and I am now a multi-award-winning cross genre film editor and producer. I have amassed an impressive list of broadcast credits and accolades across documentary, factual entertainment, natural history and specialist factual genres.
 
In recent years, I have also enjoyed cutting for the silver screen. In 2012 I began work on the theatrical natural history documentary Enchanted Kingdom 3D and then later the IMAX production Wild Africa 3D. My latest theatrical project, Earth: One Amazing Day - directed by Richard Dale and Peter Webber, and narrated by Robert Redford - is currently showing in cinemas around the world.

My recent television projects include the Grierson nominated Attenborough and the Empire of the Ants and the much publicised Manson: The Lost Tapes, praised for “raising the bar” in ITV docs.
 
Both my television and theatrical work have been recognised at film festivals across the world such as Jackson Hole, Wildscreen, Missoula and The International Film Festival of India.

When I’m not in the cutting room making fabulous films, I like to be busy… which is just as well as I’m the very proud father of eight-year-old identical twin girls.
