I have been in the film industry for a while and have accumulated many skills over the years. But I must admit that my passion lies in editing. I really love crafting story. I have spent the last 7 years working almost exclusively on TV Drama shows. These include, The Professionals with Tom Welling and Brendan Fraser, Gomora, It's Complicated, Jacob's Cross S3-6, MTV's Shuga S2, Endgame, DreamWorld, Magic with Mo and loads more.
On the music concert and video front I have crafted material for Mango Groove, Watershed, Steve Hofmeyr, the great and legendary Shawn Phillips and British based band Marillion.
I have also worked on several feature films, more recently an American/South African Co-Production of Zulu Wedding and Lag Mense as well as Mrs Right Guy. I was also part of the editing team for the Multi Award Winning Documentary Amandla -  A Revolution in 4 Part Harmony.

I am very skilled in FCPX, Adobe Premiere, Adobe Audition, Photoshop. I am semi skilled in Avid, After Effects, Cubase, Logic Pro, and various other bits and pieces of software. I am also technically very adept and have served time as post production supervisor, head editor and chief sound designer for several years. I also happen to have won several awards for my work, from editing to sound design as well as camerawork and directing.

I am most at home in the edit suite these days but I do really enjoy getting my hands dirty in all aspects of the television process. I work well with others and require no supervision at anytime.
