After completing media education at both college and university level I learnt the ropes of broadcast post production at Pilot Film and TV Productions.
Whilst working for Pilot as staff I quickly climbed the post production ladder, managing their in house Avid suites, dubbing facilities, camera equipment, and eventually acting as an offline editor within the company. After overseeing the installation of HD online editing systems for Pilot in 2008, I quickly became their regular online editor. At the end of 2008 I left Pilot to pursue a carear as a freelance offline & online editor but today Pilot still remain one of my regular clients.
Technical Skills & Equipment
I am proficient in the use of FCP 7 and AVID Media Composer as well as having a good working knowledge of FCP X, After Effects, Photoshop, Premier, Apple Motion, DVD Studio Pro, Compressor and many other industry standard programs. I also have an excellent knowledge of broadcast VTRs, Cameras, and media workflows.

The flexibility of this kit allows me to work both from the edit suite at home where additional client display monitors and realtime DVD recording are available, or as a mobile edit station when needed.
