As you've probably noticed, I'm a South African Film & TV Editor. I have lived in South Africa all my life. I have worked in remote villages in the poorest districts of South Africa like Eastern Cape in the east and in the metropolis of Durban and Cape Town.

I have a deep understanding of and, more importantly, sensitivity for the widely diverse cultures and people of South Africa.

Having worked for national television channels and organizations, I offer insights with a global perspective to my stories.

I have edited documentaries, reality tv shows, short films, music videos, drama and made-for-tv movies for national channels and companies including SABC, E.TV, Peu Communications Solutions, Plum Productions, New-Wave Productions, Blue Wizard and Sorele Media just to name a few.

I can research the story, consult with directors and producers on a story angle and structure, prep the footage, offline and online edit the package. A lot, true. And a massive advantage when quick turnaround is vital. What's more having hands-on experience in all these areas in post-production also enables me to work better in a team collaboration.

With a broad range of skills under my belt, in 2018 I decided to go freelance, and I'm open for day edit work through to 12 months contracts as an Editor or Assistant. I'm equally happy working with a big room of clients as I am working from my own home studio set up. Whether the job is big or small, I hope I can offer a quick, efficient and versatile skill-set to finish the job to a high creative standard - above all, I always aim to 'wow' my clients!

If you are interested in hiring me, please contact me by email or call me on 078 821 5506. I can be hired with or without kit, and very happy to travel - be it on set or in your office - or I can work remotely from my home studio.
I look forward to hearing from you!
