The Dumping Ground is an award-winning CBBC Drama and spin-off to the Tracy Beaker series' that aired many years ago. I've been involved with show for several years, starting off as the onliner in the second half of S4, before moving into the offline for S7 where I assisted and eventually cut my first episode. It's been a privilage to have a great working relationship with this production, one which will hopefully continue into ensuing series of this brilliant show.



Video editing: adding punctuating to an actor’s performance, blending cinematography with music and finding pace and cohesion within a narrative to evoke a strong emotional response; it’s a very rewarding process and a big passion of mine.

My work as an editor generally falls into two camps; my main focus is pursuing a career as a long-form narrative editor, which is to work on scripted productions such as TV drama and film. I've worked in this field predominantly since going freelance, both as an offline editor and as a 1st AE, continually developing my own methodical, fast and instinctive approach to storytelling.

I'm also an experienced online editor, having been a staff onliner for many years prior, and one that I still keep my toes in. It's role that gets me involved with a broad variety of production genres, and can cover anything from colour grading to visual effects to file-encoding and delivery - essentially, I can handle the finishing stages of post.

I'm based near Cardiff, South Wales, though I'm happy whittling away long days at any edit suite across the UK. I've also got a great Avid setup at home which has seen plenty of investment recently with the shift towards remote operating.
