I am an experienced post production professional with over 8 years experience. Whilst up to date with the latest FCP Studio package, comfortable working with graphics, web video, multiple formats and the new range of digital HD cameras, I still burn the flame for what editing is about at its core: Storytelling, building rthym and pace and coming up with creative solutions. I work with a wide range of software/technology but focus on Final Cut Studio.

Having spent years DOING post production I have also developed a passion for teaching it: From basic DV shooting and editing on i-Movie to specific training in advanced Final Cut Pro. I have received my own training in participatory methods of teaching (ie i don't sit and lecture at you!).

Courses can be completely tailored to the individual's learning style and needs. My students generally find this flexible individual tuition both more cost effective AND beneficial than standardized group training.

Please see my website for examples of projects I have edited and a full CV:
