I’m an Auckland-based creative film and video editor with over fourteen years experience cutting commercials, promos and music videos. I have a passion for original storytelling and an avid interest in digital technology. I recently returned home to New Zealand from seven years living and working in Europe, and I’m now available for editing work on a freelance basis throughout Australasia.
I was drawn to the craft of editing from an early age. After completing a bachelor’s degree in Communication Studies, I worked my way up from runner to in-house editor at respected production house The Sweet Shop, before answering London's call through a stint at Marshall Street Editors. That role saw me working from their Soho offices and also on sets from Manchester to Madrid, with some of the best commercials directors in the world, and for brands such as Heineken, Jeep, Burberry, L'Oreal and Apple.
In 2012, I made the move to Amsterdam, where I worked for almost five years alongside a wide range of talented people, from award-winning agencies Wieden & Kennedy, 72&Sunny and 180 Amsterdam to production powerhouses such as Stink, Smuggler, VICE and MJZ.
I look forward to bringing the skills and experience I gained overseas home with me, and applying them to telling local stories in the most compelling ways possible.
