I am currently working as a consultant in the Broadcasting and Film business. I have over 20 years experience as an editor and started out in the News and Current Affairs department of the BBC. I was one of the first people to migrate to Digital Non Linear editing in 1991 and was responsible for the first ever direct-to-air program from the Avid Non-Linear editing system when I was working as the chief editor for the UK current affairs programme “Here And Now”.

After joining Avid in 1995 I became an instructor and master trainer for both the Avid Media Composer and Avid DS. I now specialise in Media Asset Management and currently conduct training and consultation for users of Avid Interplay.

I work in Asia, Europe and The Middle East and have worked on projects from Helsinki, Finland to Wellington, New Zealand - and most places in between.
