I am a Filmmaker and Editor who's work spans Drama, Documentary, Commercials and Art.

I have just finished cutting the multi-screen drama, Playtime, directed by Isaac Julien and featuring James Franco.

My past work includes the critically acclaimed Feature Film ‘Innocence’ (“…a once-in-a-lifetime piece of cinema” - BBC), which won the Bronze Horse at Stockholm for Director Lucile Hadzihalilovic, and more recently ‘An Organization of Dreams’, (“…stunningly beautiful and brilliantly edited...” - Sight and Sound), which premiered at the London Film Festival for underground Director Ken McMullen.

In 1996 I began a long and successful collaboration as Film Editor for Artist Isaac Julien, on a series of multi-screen works. In 2001 the triptych ‘The Long Road to Mazatlan’, earned the Artist a Turner Prize nomination and his 2003 film, ‘Baltimore’ took the Grand Jury Prize at the Kuntsfilm Biennale.

More recently we have collaborated on larger installations. The 2010 epic nine-screen film ‘Ten Thousand Waves’ starring the legendary Maggie Cheung received its UK premiere at the Hayward Gallery in London and has just been exhibited at MOMA in New York and added to their permanent collection. (“I cannot get this work out of my mind.“ - Glenn Lowry, MOMA). I have just finished work on Julien’s latest seven screen opus ‘Playtime’, featuring Franco alongside Mercedes Cabral and Maggie Cheung, which is currently touring the world. A three minute version of the film was shown across 17 screens in Times Square before midnight every day last December.

I have also cut a wide range of Documentary Films. ‘Peter Green - Back for Good’ earned a RTS Best Editor nomination and the Feature doc. ‘Derek’ with Tilda Swinton was nominated for the societies' 'Best Documentary' Award and was in competition at Sundance. 'Storyville BaadAsssss Cinema', ("It doesn't come any better than this." - Hollywood Reporter), was an Official entry to Toronto Film Festival. A long running association with BBC Horizon, (21 films), culminated in ‘Horizon Parallel Universes’, which represented Horizon to win a BAFTA for Best Documentary Strand.
