WHERE THE MAGIC STARTED
As a kid I was glued to the television. Dad watching classic black and white movies, mum a good tv soap. I loved a ‘who done it’ and was particularly fond of Poirot but I never dreamt I’d some day be working in the industry.
I studied Art & Design at College and then a BA in Textiles for my Degree so have always enjoyed being creative. After moving to London I realised I wanted to do something media related. That’s when I got into video production.
I had to start again and with no education in films studies it meant learning on the job. I started out in a small video production company. It was office based to start, making call sheets and helping to organise shoot logistics.
During that time I met an amazing producer called Sheila Stirrat. She took me under her wing and became a truly amazing mentor. She got me running on shoots, making teas and coffee and watching and learning as I went.
It was when she founded her own production company and asked me to join her that my career really started to take off.
It was a humble beginning; working out of her home office but we soon moved to a small studio in Putney. It was there that the magic happened, when I helped to set up what was to become my first edit suite.
As soon as we started cutting in-house I was hooked. I realised that editing had this strange connection to textiles. Taking pieces of media and stitching them together, it all felt so strangely familiar but also so very different. That’s when I knew I wanted to become an editor.
I realised becoming an editor would take time, and a lot of patience. I watched and learned from several amazing editors kind enough to share knowledge and guidance along the way.
Cut to some ten years later, I’ve had the opportunity to work with some amazing people on many brilliant projects and I feel blessed to be where I am now. The magic never stops.
