Born in 1982, I lived and grew up in Nailsea, a small town just outside of Bristol, UK. At a young age I had a keen interest in Film and Television and began making short films with friends. I attended Nailsea Comprehensive School from the age of 11 where I took and passed ten GCSE's and two A-Level's in Media Studies and Design Technology.

After my A-Level's I went to Staffordshire University to do a BSc (hons) degree in Film Production Technology. The course centred on digital video production and the creative applications that relate to the production of film and television programmes. It examined the technologies of electronics and communications and the use of current technology for video production, in particular digital filming. The use of computers for editing, mastering special effects and post-production were an important element of the course.

After graduating, I returned back home to Bristol and got my first look into the world of television through work experience as a runner for Endemol West. I worked on Celebrity Big Brother's EFourum which was being filmed live in their Bristol Studios.

I continued to build my knowledge of the Television industry with further work experience at Farm Studio in Failand as a Studio Assistant where I assisted in the making of BBC's Wild China.

I finally got my break when I was offered a Trainee Machine Room Operator position at Aardman Animations, which later led me to becaming a member of staff at BBC Post Production, Bristol and assisted on programmes such as Casualty, Natural World, Autumnwatch, Big Cat Live and Timeshift in a variety of roles, which lead me to work as an Edit Assistant in the BBC's Natural History Unit.

After 5 years of assisting at the BBC, I decided to make the move into the freelance editing world and since have worked on programmes such as Nature's Weirdest Events, Stan Lee's Superhumans, Wild Arabia, The Great British Winter, Springwatch, Bargain Hunt, The One Show, WILD! and Great Bear Stakeout.
