A Bit About Me

Hello and welcome to my creative portfolio!

I am a professional video editor from Dorset, England with a passion for all things extreme sports and adventure, with a desire to create documentaries.

Having worked in the creative industry for nearly 10 years, I've been fortunate enough to have worked in events, conference and commercial video production, as well as dabbling into a bit of film and TV work.  Most of the time I've been working as a video editor or as part of an editorial team, but I have also worked behind the camera at music events, exhibitions and corporate customer interviews.

For the last 2 years I have worked at a company called Rich Interactive based in Ringwood. Here, I have focused on editing corporate customer story videos for companies like Microsoft, Dr Martens and CDW.  I have also worked on long form event and destination spotlight projects for companies like Oceania Cruises. I thoroughly enjoy this work, especially getting to see all the different countries that the cruises go to and adding them to my bucket list!

Alongside my career, I've been a BMX rider for well over 14 years.  It

was this sport that introduced me to film making and I'm passionate

to one day return to my roots and create documentaries that follow

athletes in a variety of disciplines, including BMXing, surfing, and

climbing.

In recent years I've been inspired by the works
of film makers; Jimmy Chin, Chris Burkard,
Renan Ozturk and Mark Bone. Mark even runs
a course and community called "The Art of
Documentary", which has given me an incredible insight into converting
my skill base from corporate to documentary film making.

To start this conversion, I'm creating a series of 6 short documentaries. These short documentaries shall be character studies into the lives of individuals who have an incredible amount of passion to work on their disciplines in their spare time from the 9-5 work routine.

I shall be documenting my progress and keeping this website up to date with photos, behind the scenes videos and stories from productions so stay tuned!

If you'd like to get in touch about helping me with the production, distribution or to be a part of these films, then please feel free to email me where I am always eager to listen.
